Warning: This Stock Looks Ready For a Correction

The company that develops, manufactures, and distributes continuous glucose monitoring systems for diabetes management, DexCom, Inc. (NASDAQ: DXCM) seems to be poised for a decline in its price in the near term as per its latest charts.

Bearish Indications

#1 Rising Wedge Pattern Breakdown: The daily chart shows that DXCM has recently broken down from a rising wedge pattern that was formed during the past few months. This is a bearish pattern and is marked in pink color lines in the daily chart. Once a stock breaks down from the bottom of the rising wedge pattern, it typically moves lower in the near-term.

#2 MACD below signal line: The MACD line (blue color) is currently below the MACD signal line (orange color), indicating bearishness.

#3 %K below %D in Stochastic: The %K line is currently below the %D line in stochastic of the daily chart.

This indicates possible bearishness.

#4 Bearish ADX and DI: The ADX and DI indicate bearishness.

This is because (+DI) < (-DI); ADX and (-DI) are above (+DI); and ADX has risen above both (+DI) and (-DI).

#5 RSI-Price Bearish Divergence: The weekly chart shows that there is a bearish divergence between RSI and price.

This is because while the price was making higher highs, RSI was forming lower highs. This usually indicates the possibility of an upcoming bearish move. The bearish divergence is marked as blue color dotted lines in the chart.

#6 Supply area: The weekly chart shows that the stock is currently near a supply area, which is marked as an orange color ellipse. The stock was not able to cross above this level since the past few weeks. There was also a small green candle formed with a very high volume during the week ending May 11, 2020, which is marked as a pink color ellipse. All these indicate possible bearishness.
