A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday September 13, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. L.B. Foster Company has rising volume and follows the last lift in the price. This is considered to be a technical positive sign as volume should follow the price-formation. Higher liquidity also reduces the general risk. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. L.B. Foster Company 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 $23.25. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $21.99. 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.
