Kadant Inc lies in the lower part of a wide and weak rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $96.82 will firstly indicate a slower raising rate, but may also be a early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 7.09% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $103.68 and $125.62 at the end of this period.

A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday December 12, 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. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Kadant Inc 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 $100.51 and $102.92. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals.
