Astec Industries 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 $31.10 and $30.72. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Monday June 17, 2019, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The stock holds a RSI14 at 73 and is currently being overbought on RSI. This does not have to be a sales signal as many stocks may go both long and hard while being overbought on the RSI. It is therefore important to evaluate the history of the share as it may tell you something about the RSI-sensitiveness.
Support & Resistance
Astec Industries finds support from accumulated volume at $31.59.
This stock is usually traded at good volume, and with minor daily changes the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $0.56 (1.78%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.30%.
Our recommended stoploss: $30.49 (-4.00%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. The RSI14 is 73 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 7 days ago.)

Astec Industries holds several positive signals, but we still don't find these to be enough for a buy-recommendation. At the current level we recommend to hold or accumulate in this position whilst awaiting for further development. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Buy Candidate to a Hold/Accumulate.
