L.B. Foster Company Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Fri 20'th Jul 2018
|Shorts||2.57% ( 2018-06-29 )|
L.B. Foster Company fell by -0.22% in the last day from $22.40 to $22.35 The price has fallen in 6 of the last 10 days and is down by -6.49% for this period. Volume fell in the last day along with the stock, which is actually a good sign as volume should follow the stock. In the last day the trading volume fell by -7 905 shares and in total 21 614 shares bought and sold for approximately $483 073.00.
L.B. Foster Company is the lower part of a wide and horizontal trend on short term, and normally this would pose a good buying opportunity, though a break down through the bottom trend line at $21.67 will give a strong sales signal and a trend shift may be expected. Given the current horizontal trend you can expect L.B. Foster Company with 90% probability to be traded between $21.54 and $25.80 at the end of this period with 90% probability. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the roof. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday July 18, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. L.B. Foster Company 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. On corrections up there will be some resistance from the lines at $22.51 and $23.83. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. Volume fell along with the price during the last trading day, which is technical positive. One should, however, note that this stock may have low liquidity in periods, which increases the general risk.
