From a technical perspective, BXC is currently trending above its 200-day moving average and below its 50-day moving average, which is neutral trendwise. This stock has been downtrending for the last three months, with shares moving lower from its high of $3.48 to its recent low of $2.31 a share. During that move, shares of BXC have been mostly making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of BXC have started to bounce off that $2.31 low and it's quickly moving within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade above a key downtrend line.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in BXC as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $2.51 and then once it triggers a break out above its 50-day at $2.88 a share and then above some near-term resistance at $3.03 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 171,038 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then BXC will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $3.37 to $3.48 a share. Any high-volume move above those levels will then put $4 to $4.35 into range for shares of BXC.
