Baillie Gifford Japan Trust plc lies in the upper part of a narrow and weak rising trend in the short term, and this will 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 £785.83 will firstly indicate a stronger raising rate. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 6.72% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between £799.84 and £838.64 at the end of this period.

Baillie Gifford Japan Trust plc 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 £777.86 and £756.31. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday April 17, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.

Support & Resistance

Baillie Gifford Japan Trust plc finds support from accumulated volume at £747.00.

Support: £747.00 Price: £782.00 Resistance: £785.00


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 £13.00 (1.67%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.58%.

The stock is overbought on RSI14 and lies in the upper part of the trend. Normally this will pose a good selling opportunity for the short-term trader, but some stocks may go long and hard while being overbought. Regardless, the high RSI together with the trend position increases the risk and higher daily movements (volatility) should be expected. A correction down in the nearby future seems very likely and it is of great importance that the stock manages to break the trend before that occurs.

Our recommended stoploss: £752.16 (-3.82%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. The RSI14 is 77 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a sell signal from pivot top found 1 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High

Evaluation: Buy Candidate

Several short-term signals, along with a general good trend, are positive and we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for this stock to perform well in the short-term. We have upgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Hold/Accumulate to a Buy Candidate.
