Investors have placed Fvcbankcorp Inc (FVCB) shares on watch as the Aroon Down indicator has moved above 70, indicating that there is downward momentum building for the shares.
The Aroon indicator was developed by Tushar Chande in 1995. Aroon is used to measure the presence and strength of trends.

Values above 70 are signs of a strong trend for either component, while values that are less than 30 show that primary trend is weakening and opposing trend is picking up.
Even extremely solid stocks can sometimes face setbacks. There is no shortage of news regarding publically traded companies, and investors often have the tricky job of deciding what information is worth taking a closer look at. Making trading decisions based on one piece of data may not be the optimal course of action. When there is negative information about a company, investors may be quick to sell without looking deeper into the numbers. On the flip side, investors may be super quick to buy on good news without fully researching the stock.
