A golden cross is a indicator that is produced when the faster 50-day moving average (highlighted in blue) crosses above the slower 200-day moving average (highlighted in red). This indicator is popular among investors because it is used to confirm that a bull market is development. This indicator was generated in July 2016, and there are no signs that this indicator will avert any time soon. This is because EXAS stock is currently trading above both moving averages that generated this indicator.
In January 2017, a cross was generated, indicating that the momentum was once again propelling Exact Sciences stock. The path of least resistance is now geared toward higher prices. This indicator effectively confirmed that the consolidation wave had concluded, and served to suggest that a new impulse wave was in development.
