Wal-Mart Stores Inc gained 0.95% in the last trading day, rising from $88.76 to $89.60, and has now gained 3 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days and is up by 1.75% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 1.47 million more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 5.75 million shares bought and sold for approximately $514.79 million.


Wal-Mart Stores Inc lies in the upper part of a weak rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break-up at the top trend line at $90.56 will firstly indicate a stronger raising rate. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 5.94% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $90.75 and $95.94 at the end of this period.

This is considered to be a good technical signal.
