Elite Pharmaceuticals Inc (OTCMKTS:ELTP) Trading Outlook, After the Sell Off

ELTP has been hammered so the technicals naturally look ugly, yesterday the stock hung on very well considering some bad news.

The real answer to “what’s next” will be some update from the company as to their path forward.

Candlesticks

A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.

During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 25 white candles and 23 black candles for a net of 2 white candles.

A falling window occurred (where the bottom of the previous shadow is above the top of the current shadow). This usually implies a continuation of a bearish trend. The two candles preceding the falling window were black, which makes this pattern even more bearish.

ELITE PHARMA closed down -0.078 at 0.232. Volume was 1,314% above average (trending) and Bollinger Bands were 171% wider than normal.
