Only positive signals in the chart today. 51job holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at USD 34.93 and USD 34.22. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday January 12, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely.
