Only positive signals in the chart today. 51job holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $66.27 and $65.08. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday January 10, 2019, 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.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The stock holds a RSI14 at 74 and is currently being overbought on RSI. This does not have to be a sales signal as many stocks may go both long and hard while being overbought on the RSI. It is therefore important to evaluate the history of the share as it may tell you something about the RSI-sensitiveness.
Support & Resistance
51job finds support from accumulated volume at $65.88.
This stock may move much during a day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $2.44 between high and low, or 3.67%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 3.38%.
Our recommended stoploss: $64.67 (-4.69%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. The RSI14 is 74 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 6 days ago.)
Very Low Low Medium High Very High
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 Buy Candidate to a Strong Buy Candidate.
