XOMA Corporation Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Tue 23'rd May 2017

Sell candidate since 2017-05-23

XOMA Corporation fell by -2.13% in the last day, from USD 6.56 to USD 6.42 The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a 3.88% gain for the last 2 weeks. Volume fell in the last day along with the stock, which is actually a good sign as volume should follow the stock. In the last day, the trading volume fell by -11 257 shares and in total, 15 792 shares bought and sold for approximately USD 101 385.

Trend

XOMA Corporation lies in the lower part of a very wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at USD 6.30 will firstly indicate a slower raising rate, but may also be a early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 25.1% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between USD 7.88 and USD 10.42 at the end of this period.

Signals

There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. XOMA Corporation holds sales signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general sales signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up there will be some resistance from the lines at USD 6.45 and USD 6.65. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Monday May 22, 2017, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell along with the price during the last trading day, which is technical positive. One should, however, note that this stock may have low liquidity in periods, which increases the general risk.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

RSI14 is 44 and the stock is currently not being overbought or oversold

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, XOMA Corporation finds support just below today's level at 6.04. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at 5.81 and 5.35.

Our recommended stoploss: We hold a sell evaluation for this stock. No stop-loss set.

Evaluation

The stock stock holds several negative signals and despite the positive trend we believe XOMA Corporation will perform weak in the next couple of days or weeks. Therefore, we hold a negative evaluation of this stock. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Hold/Accumulate to a Sell Candidate.
