The relatively low volume of Now Corporation (NOW) is not helping its share price inch up above the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement at 8.65.
Although the price closed above the 10SMA last Wednesday, 11 April 2018, it failed to complete my buying signal since MACD did not seem to have any plan of crossing over the signal line. Even if I wanted to do an “anticipation play,” the volume wasn’t motivating enough.
Did I make the right decision? I can only tell in retrospect (and you, too). Anyway, I do the stock analysis for myself and my clients not to prove that I am right but to reduce the risk by becoming data-driven in all our investment decisions.
The major support of NOW lies near 5.80 while its resistance is near 12.00. The position of the 10SMA is somewhere near the mid-range support at 8.65.
I just didn’t plot it on my chart but NOW’s closing price is in the middle of the upper and lower Bollinger bands. That supports my observation that NOW traders are in an indecision mode.
As of April 13, 2018, at 03:30PM, the volume is 126.78% of the previous trading day.
Remember these 4 equations below.
- bullish price + high volume = high sustainability (current price trend)
- bullish price + low volume = low sustainability (current price trend)
- bearish price + high volume = high sustainability (current price trend)
- bearish price + low volume = low sustainability (current price trend)
Considering NOW’s volume, its price action for the past trading days, and what I see on its Price-Volume Distribution chart below, this 8.49 may act as its intraday support or resistance by the next trading day.

Looking at the buying average of the top 10 players last Friday, there’s a chance that they will continue to hold since their buying average is higher than the closing price unless they will see a compelling news that will push the panic-selling button.
