SunPower Corporation gained 0.25% in the last trading day, rising from $7.96 to $7.98 , and has now gained 3 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days.

Volume fell in the last day by -325 818 shares, and in total, 754 765 shares bought and sold for approximately $6.02 million.

SunPower Corporation lies in the middle of a very wide and falling trend in the short term and further fall within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -12.11% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $5.84 and $7.72 at the end of this period.
A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday July 03, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development.
SunPower Corporationholds a buysignal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, a sales signal from the long-term average. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sales signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $8.07. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $7.87. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sales signal and strengthen the general signal.
A buy signal from a double bottom formation was found on Tuesday July 03, 2018 with a target of $7.94. Despite the objective of the signal formation has been reached the stock may continue to perform well.
