Atara Biotherapeutics 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 $43.39 and $31.34. 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 Wednesday February 14, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.

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, Atara Biotherapeutics finds support just below today's level at $39.48. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $37.25 and $35.45. The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at $47.05 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.
