Stellar Biotch Cm ST (SBOT) Trends Toward Lower Bollinger Band

Stellar Biotch Cm ST (SBOT) touched its lower 7-day moving average bollinger band.  Investors will be paying close attention to the shares to see if they will experience a bounce off the bottom or continue the downward near-term trend.

Developed by technical analyst John Bollinger in the 1980s, Bollinger Bands identify the degree of real-time volatility for a currency pair. Traders keep a close eye on volatility because a sudden increase in volatility levels is often the prelude to a market trend reversal. Bollinger Bands are placed over a price chart and consist of a moving average together with upper and lower bands that define pricing “channels”.

The initial bottom of this formation tends to have substantial volume and a sharp price pullback that closes outside of the lower bollinger band. These types of moves typically lead to what is called an “automatic rally.” The high of the automatic rally tends to serve as the first level of resistance in the base building process that occurs before the stock moves higher.When choosing additional indicators for technical stock analysis, traders and investors may opt to examine the ATR or Average True Range. The present 14-day ATR for Stellar Biotch Cm ST (SBOT) is currently sitting at 0.05. The ATR basically measures the volatility of a stock on a day-to-day basis.

Checking in on some other technical levels, the 14-day RSI is currently at 44.22, the 7-day stands at 47.56, and the 3-day is sitting at 58.51. The RSI, or Relative Strength Index, is a commonly used technical momentum indicator that compares price movement over time. The RSI was created by J. Welles Wilder who was striving to measure whether or not a stock was overbought or oversold. The RSI may be useful for spotting abnormal price activity and volatility. The RSI oscillates on a scale from 0 to 100. The normal reading of a stock will fall in the range of 30 to 70. A reading over 70 would indicate that the stock is overbought, and possibly overvalued. A reading under 30 may indicate that the stock is oversold, and possibly undervalued.

Another technical indicator that may be a powerful resource for determining trend strength is the Average Directional Index or ADX. The ADX was introduced by J. Welles Wilder in the late 1970’s and it has stood the test of time.

A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal.
