You should take into consideration that a falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes for the next couple of days.

Only positive signals in the chart today. NewJersey Resources Corporation 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 $45.66 and $46.93. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Monday January 14, 2019, 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
NewJersey Resources Corporation finds support from accumulated volume at $45.33.
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 $0.70 (1.50%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.01%.
Since the NewJersey Resources 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: $45.44 (-3.66%) (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 are positive, despite the stock being in a falling trend, 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 Hold/Accumulate to a Buy Candidate.
