Volume has increased in the last day by 5 710 shares, but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly for the next couple of days. In total, 408 898 shares bought and sold for approximately $27.93 million.


BJ lies in the lower part of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $66.03 will firstly indicate a slower raising rate, but may also be a early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 11.65% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $73.72 and $89.17 at the end of this period.

There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. BJ holds a buysignal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, a sales signal from the long-term average. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sales signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $71.12. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $67.45. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sales signal and strengthen the general signal. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday October 16, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.
