Builders FirstSource (BLDR) Just Overtook the 50-Day Moving Average

·1 min read

Builders FirstSource (BLDR) reached a significant support level, and could be a good pick for investors from a technical perspective. Recently, BLDR broke through the 50-day moving average, which suggests a short-term bullish trend.

The 50-day simple moving average is one of three major moving averages used by traders and analysts to determine support or resistance levels for a wide range of securities. But the 50-day is considered to be more important because it's the first marker of an up or down trend.

With a winning combination of earnings estimate revisions and hitting a key technical level, investors should keep their eye on BLDR for more gains in the near future.
