Analysts have spotted a possible bearish inside day candle pattern in BPZ Resources (AMEX:BPZ) based on the price action in the company's shares. Yesterday's price range of $2.85 and $2.98 is within the prior day's high and low of the day. This trading action often signifies indecision by bulls and bears to drive prices higher or lower and often implies a possible change in trend. Owners of BPZ Resources may want to consider a possible hedge in the event a pullback occurs. Look for confirmation in the next few trading days.

BPZ Resources share prices have moved between a 52-week high of $4.64 and a 52-week low of $2.01 and closed yesterday at 44% above that low price at $2.90 per share. Over the last five market days, the 200-day moving average (MA) has gone down 0.5% while the 50-day MA has remained constant.

BPZ Resources (AMEX:BPZ) has potential upside of 63.8% based on a current price of $2.90 and analysts' consensus price target of $4.75. The stock should discover initial support at its 200-day moving average (MA) of $2.87 and subsequent support at its 50-day MA of $2.61.
