51job Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Thu 21'st Sep 2017

Buy candidate since 2017-09-20 Gain 0.02%

51job gained 0.02% in the last trading day, rising from $58.49 to $58.50 The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days , but is still down by -2.56% for this period. Volume has increased in the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 163 214 more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 289 660 shares bought and sold for approximately $16.95 million.


51job has broken the wide and strong rising short-term trend down. This signalize a slower rising rate, but may also be an early warning about a possible trend shift. Due to trend being broken there will now be resistance at the bottom line of the trend at $58.78. A reaction back to this level may hold a second chance to get out before further falls.


Only positive signals in the chart today. 51job 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 $59.18. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $57.86. 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 September 20, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.

A buy signal from a double bottom formation was found on Wednesday September 20, 2017 and based on theory for this formation the price should go up by 2.40% to $61.06 within 3 trading days since signal was issued (Monday September 25, 2017).

Support & Resistance

On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $55.39 and $53.73. On the upside the stock meets some resistance just above today's level from accumulated volume at $58.66, $58.68 and $59.43.

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, 51job finds support just below today's level at $55.39. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $53.73 and $49.67. The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at $58.66 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.
