First Citizens BancShares gained 0.36% in the last trading day, rising from $437.53 to $439.11 , and has now gained 4 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days , but is still down by -5.16% for this period. Volume has increased in the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 3 504 more shares were traded than the day before.

First Citizens BancShares lies in the lower part of a wide and weak rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $432.49 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 9.76% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $474.70 and $552.23 at the end of this period.

First Citizens BancShares holds sales signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general sales signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average.
