Shares of Dollar General are trading today in above average volume, with the share price falling 0.5% to $45.28. Today's volume of 7.0 million shares tops the average 30-day volume of 4.4 million shares. Spikes in volume can validate a breakout or signify a potential turning point.

Dollar General Corp. operates a chain of discount retail stores located primarily in the southern, southwestern, midwestern and eastern United States. The Company offer a broad selection of merchandise, including consumable products such as food, paper and cleaning products, health and beauty products and pet supplies, and non-consumable products such as seasonal merchandise.

Over the past year, Dollar General has traded in a range of $39.73 to $56.04 and is now at $45.28, 14% above that low. The 200-day and 50-day moving averages have moved 0.01% lower and 0.3% lower over the past week, respectively.

Potential upside of 17.9% exists for Dollar General, based on a current level of $45.28 and analysts' average consensus price target of $53.41. The stock should find initial resistance at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $45.42 and further resistance at its 200-day MA of $48.88.
