Barrick Gold Corporation Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Tue 26’th Jun 2018
Barrick Gold Corporation fell by -0.93% in the last day from $12.87 to $12.75 and has now fallen 3 days in a row. The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a -3.12% loss for the last 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day by 3.37 million shares, but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly for the next couple of days. In total, 9.18 million shares bought and sold for approximately $117.07 million.
Barrick Gold Corporation has broken the horizontal trend down. Breaks like this are often followed by swift and strong movements, and any correction down to the breakline at approximately $12.83 is considered to be a “second chance” to get out before further fall. It is, however, important to note that false breaks may appear and that the price may move back into the horizontal trend. A break on increasing volume is considered to be more significant and reliable than breaks on low volume.
There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. Barrick Gold 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 $12.86 and $13.13. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Friday June 22, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.
