Bank of America Corporation gained 1.20% in the last trading day, rising from $30.88 to $31.25 The price has risen in 7 of the last 10 days and is up by 3.72% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 5.02 million more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 68.99 million shares bought and sold for approximately $2 155.87 million.
Bank of America Corporation is the upper part of a wide and horizontal trend and normally this would pose a good selling opportunity, but a break-up through the top trend line at $31.30 will give a strong buy signal and a trend shift may be expected. Given the current horizontal trend you can expect Bank of America Corporation with 90% probability to be traded between $27.35 and $30.94 at the end of this period with 90% probability. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the roof. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
Bank of America 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 $31.05 and $29.45. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal. 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 Monday July 30, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The stock holds a RSI14 at 75 and is currently being overbought on RSI. This does not have to be a sales signal as many stocks may go both long and hard while being overbought on the RSI. It is therefore important to evaluate the history of the share as it may tell you something about the RSI-sensitiveness.
Support & Resistance
Bank of America Corporation finds support from accumulated volume at $30.13.
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 $0.38 between high and low, or 1.22%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.26%.
The stock is overbought on RSI14 and lies in the upper part of the trend. Normally this will pose a good selling opportunity for the short-term trader, but some stocks may go long and hard while being overbought. Regardless, the high RSI together with the trend position increases the risk and higher daily movements (volatility) should be expected. A correction down in the nearby future seems very likely and it is of great importance that the stock manages to break the trend before that occurs.
Our recommended stoploss: $29.99 (-4.02%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. The RSI14 is 75 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 2 days ago.)
Very Low Low Medium High Very High
