Dexcom Inc. is an internationally active company with its headquarters in San Diego, California. Its focus is on the development of glucose systems for diabetes management. In the following analysis, we will go into more detail on the company’s stock from a chart-related point of view.
Review (daily chart)
The downward trend was confirmed at the beginning of May. The stock has just corrected a little more than 50%, making it a potential short candidate with speculation on the continuation of the downward trend as soon as corresponding entry signals form. A correction running somewhat higher would be desirable, since this would result in downward potential of up to 29%.
Outlook hourly chart
In the hourly chart, we can see the correction that is currently underway, which is yet to develop in our preferred trading direction. For a short entry, one should wait for a signal to form, e.g. in the form of a P2, and then place the stop loss above the last P3 (displayed in green). Alternatively, and with the advantage of a cheaper stop, one can also practice trading from out of the correction, i.e. the formation of a reversal candle at a significant point.
The target is located in the areas around $66.00 and $58.00 (see green zones in the daily chart). If the price considerably exceeds the last significant high at $82.00, one should refrain from pursuing the short scenario for the time being (see red zone).
Before trading, one should take news in the environment and from the company into account. Similarly, one should also observe the development of the overall market.
