The negative 3.69 MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) indicator suggests a bearish signal (12-day minus 26-day Exponential Moving Averages).

In the Israel market, the stock's relative price strength percentile is slipping at 14 for 6 months, 9 for 3 months and 6 for 1 month.

The price sank 5.4% in the last week and tumbled 9.4% in the last month.

The 0.2% premium to 12-month low of NIS149.10 against the 27.4% discount to high of NIS205.64 suggests the decline might be bottoming.
