J. Alexander's (JAX) operates casual dining restaurants in the U.S., offering an American menu. This stock is trading up 4.7% at $14.17 in recent trading.
Today's Volume: 75,000Average Volume: 54,814 Volume % Change: 152% From a technical perspective, JAX is ripping higher here with above average volume, and this stock is breaking out above some near-term overhead resistance at $13.96. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in JAX as long as it's trending above some major near-term support levels at $13 to $13.50 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 54,814 shares as bullish. If we continue to see that action, then JAX has a great chance of hitting $20 in the near future. On the flipside, I would avoid JAX or look for short-biased trades if it fails to hold this trend, and then drops below some $12.80 with high volume.
