Grade Last Price % Change Price Change
grade A 58.6 1.30% 0.75
AFAM closed up 1.3 percent on Friday, February 23, 2018, on 43 percent of normal volume. It was able to find support at its 50 day moving average. The price action carved out a bullish hammer (or hammer-like) candlestick pattern. That may indicate an upside reversal. Look for price to trade above the high of the hammer for confirmation. Note that the stock is in overbought territory based on its Slow Stochastic indicator (14, 3, 3) -- sideways movement or a pullback should not be unexpected.
