There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. LKQ Corporation 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 $28.82 and $31.75. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday October 16, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.
