There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday February 21, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Kadant Inc holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages, but the stock has a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $97.65 and $97.71. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. 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.
