Shutterstock’s main business is its digital media provision. The company is famous for providing images, videos and any other digital materials that can be acquired with a given fee.

With this, the number of clients of Shutterstock, which is very vital for the company, will boost and such will certainly be a beneficial moment for the digital company.

Trading Performance


Shutterstock’s performance had a massive drop since its earnings release. From the 40’s region, the digital provider was pulled down to the slumps of 30’s region indicating an immense sell out by the investors. It can be reasoned out for the fact that these investors were disappointed with the results and thus making them sell their shares for the company.

The company’s Relative Strength Index also mirrored the performance. The huge decline labeled the stock as a much oversold company with its RSI level indicating a result below 30’s, specifically at 18.20.

Lastly, the Coppock curve indicator was seen declining badly in its recent trades. Shutterstock was seen pulled down to the depths of the negative region. Right now, it is at -24.62 – a very much recommended sell for the pair. However, the recent trades had shown that it may recover somehow but it may take a lot of time to pick itself back up from its dreadful trend.
