Stronger technical forecast for BCB Bancorp stock price after Friday trading.
(Updated on Jul 19, 2024)

Buy or Hold candidate since Jul 08, 2024 Gain 20.63% PDF

The BCB Bancorp stock price gained 1.75% on the last trading day (Friday, 19th Jul 2024), rising from $12.01 to $12.22. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 3.66% from a day low at $11.97 to a day high of $12.41. The price has risen in 9 of the last 10 days and is up by 21.71% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell on the last day by -24 thousand shares and in total, 56 thousand shares were bought and sold for approximately $679.81 thousand. You should take into consideration that falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes over the next couple of days.

The stock lies in the upper part of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break-up at the top trend line at $12.28 will firstly indicate a stronger rate of rising. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 11.27% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $11.20 and $13.67 at the end of this 3-month period.

BCBP Signals & Forecast

The BCB Bancorp stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term Moving Averages giving a positive forecast for the stock. Also, 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 $11.78 and $10.39. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, July 17, 2024, and so far it has fallen -0.163%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day while the price increased. This causes a divergence and may be considered as an early warning, but it may also not.

Support, Risk & Stop-loss for BCB Bancorp stock

On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $10.63 and $10.55. There is a natural risk involved when a stock is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the stock then may fall to the next support level. In this case, BCB Bancorp finds support just below today's level at $10.63. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $10.55 and $10.04.

This stock may move much during the day (volatility) and with periodic low trading volume this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $0.438 between high and low, or 3.66%. For the last week the stock has had daily average volatility of 4.06%.

Our recommended stop-loss: $11.84 (-3.07%) (This stock has high daily movements and this gives high risk. There is a sell signal from a pivot top found 23 days ago.)

Trading Expectations (BCBP) For The Upcoming Trading Day Of Monday 22nd

For the upcoming trading day on Monday, 22nd we expect BCB Bancorp to open at $12.20, and during the day (based on 14 day Average True Range), to move between $11.83 and $12.61, which gives a possible trading interval of +/-$0.392 (+/-3.21%) up or down from last closing price. If BCB Bancorp takes out the full calculated possible swing range there will be an estimated 6.42% move between the lowest and the highest trading price during the day.

Since the stock is closer to the resistance from accumulated volume at $12.24 (0.16%) than the support at $10.63 (13.01%), our systems don't find the trading risk/reward intra-day attractive and any bets should be held until the stock is closer to the support level.
