Given the current horizontal trend you can expect Ibstock plc with 90% probability to be traded between £239.12 and £265.57 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.
There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. Ibstock plc 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 £248.00 and £253.74. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday May 21, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.
