Xenon Pharmaceuticals Inc. lies in the middle of a very wide and strong rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled.

Xenon Pharmaceuticals Inc. 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 $11.05 and $9.90. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday August 09, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Xenon Pharmaceuticals Inc. gained volume on the last day, but on falling prices. In technical terms this is called divergence and may be an early warning. In some cases, increasing volume on falling prices may be considered positive, but that is mainly in typical "sell-off's".
