Trend

United Microelectronics Corporation has broken the narrow and strong rising the short-term trend up and an even stronger rising rate is indicated. For any reaction back there will now be support on the roof on the current trend broken at $2.87, a level that may pose a second chance to hit a runner. According to fan-theory $2.99 will be the next possible trend-top level and thereby pose a resistance level which may not be broken at the first attempt.

Signals

Only positive signals in the chart today. United Microelectronics Corporation holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $2.93 and $2.75. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Friday May 18, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

RSI14 is 90 and the stock is extremely overbought on RSI14, but may also ontinue to gain. Some stocks see their best performance while being overbought, but very seldom does RSI remain so high for a long time without short corrections. Risk has therefore increased and larger daily movements can be expected for the next couple of days.

Support & Resistance

On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $2.60 and $2.59.

There is natural risk involved when a stock is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the stock then may fall to the next support level. In this case, United Microelectronics Corporation finds support just below today's level at $2.60. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $2.59 and $2.57.

Support: $2.60 Price: $3.08

Risk

This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $0.03 between high and low, or 0.98%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.68%.

The stock is extremely overbought on RSI14 (90). Normally this will pose a good selling opportunity, but since the stock has broken the trend up the chance for a major correction due to high RSI is very small as the stock will find support at the trend broken.

Our recommended stoploss: $2.91 (-5.36%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. The RSI14 is 90 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 19 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High

Evaluation

Several short-term signals are positive and the stock has broke the rising trend up, which indicates an even stronger rising rate. We conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for this stock to perform well in the short-term period. We have upgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Buy Candidate to a Strong Buy Candidate.
