General Dynamics Corporation Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Thu 19'th Oct 2017

Buy candidate since 2017-10-18 Gain 0.59%

General Dynamics Corporation gained 0.59% in the last trading day, rising from $210.39 to $211.64 The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a -0.85% loss for the last 2 weeks. Volume fell in the last day by -271 155 shares, and in total, 674 486 shares bought and sold for approximately $142.75 million. You should take into consideration that a falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes for the next couple of days.


General Dynamics Corporation lies in the middle of a weak rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 7.24% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $217.45 and $230.41 at the end of this period.


Only positive signals in the chart today. General Dynamics Corporation holds a sales signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term moving average at approximately $212.41. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $205.77. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sales signal. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday October 18, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely.

The stock had a Golden Star Signal* on Monday August 14, 2017 in the short-term chart.

Support & Resistance

On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $198.73 and $194.66. On the upside the stock meets some resistance just above today's level from accumulated volume at $212.60, $213.34 and $213.45.

There is natural risk involved when a stock is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the stock then may fall to the next support level. In this case, General Dynamics Corporation finds support just below today's level at $198.73. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $194.66 and $193.84. The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at $212.60 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.

Support: $198.73 Price: $211.64 Resistance: $212.60

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.
