Catalyst Biosciences 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 $27.45 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 63.75% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $44.94 and $71.24 at the end of this period.

There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. Catalyst Biosciences 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 $28.04 and $28.51. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday March 20, 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.

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 $1.22 between high and low, or 4.45%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 5.60%.

Catalyst Biosciences is oversold on RSI14 (26). Some stocks may drop long and hard while being oversold on RSI before turning, which increases the general risk.

Our recommended stoploss: $25.73 (-6.48%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. Low RSI14 is 26 which reduces the risk some. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 3 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High
