Astra Space Daily Chart Analysis

  • Shares fell below the key $8 level and fell below what traders call a sideways channel. Now both the $8 and $12 levels may hold as resistance in the future.
  • The stock trades below both the 50-day moving average (green) and the 200-day moving average (blue). This indicates the sentiment is bearish, and each of these moving averages may hold as an area of resistance in the future.
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been falling the past few months and now sits at 26. This is well into the oversold range and is showing that the stock is seeing many more sellers than it is buyers.
