KLA-Tencor Corporation has broken the wide and weak rising the short-term trend up and an even stronger rising rate is indicated. For any reaction back there will now be support on the roof on the current trend broken at $113.75, a level that may pose a second chance to hit a runner. According to fan-theory $124.82 will be the next possible trend-top level and thereby pose a resistance level which may not be broken at the first attempt.
Only positive signals in the chart today. KLA-Tencor Corporation 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 $110.09 and $106.95. 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 11, 2018, 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.

Support & Resistance
On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $103.87 and $102.24. There is no resistance from accumulated volume above today's level and given the right condition the stock may perform very well during the next couple of days.
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, KLA-Tencor Corporation finds support just below today's level at $103.87. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $102.24 and $100.35.
This stock is usually traded at good volume, and with minor daily changes the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $1.53 (1.35%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.78%.
Since the KLA-Tencor Corporation has been rising for 6 days in a row, the risk for the next couple of days has increased. We don't expect a major reaction as the stock is in very good shape technically, and therefore hold a positive evaluation despite the very short term risk.
Our recommended stoploss: $111.07 (-3.43%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 5 days ago.)
Very Low Low Medium High Very High
Several short-term signals, along with a general good trend, are positive and the stock has broken the rising trend up, which indicates an even stronger rising rate. We can 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 period. Due to a possible false trend-break a pure Buy Recommendation is held back. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Strong Buy Candidate to a Buy Candidate.
