Technical Analysis for FPF - First Trust Intermediate Duration Preferred & Income Fund

Grade Last Price % Change Price Change
grade C 23.61 -0.25% -0.06
FPF closed down 0.25 percent on Wednesday, December 11, 2019, on 1.41 times normal volume. 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 oversold territory based on its Slow Stochastic indicator (14, 3, 3) -- sideways movement or a bounce should not be unexpected.
