Technical Analysis – JPMorgan stock gathers some positive vibes below record highs

Posted on October 15, 2019 at 11:21 am GMT

JPMorgan Chase & Co saw its stock unlocking new record highs at 120.33 in mid-September before pulling back. The 200-day exponential moving average (EMA) strictly halted the downside correction thereafter as it did at some point in the past, allowing the bulls to regain some ground. The short-term risk looks to be tilted slightly to the upside as the RSI has softly increased above its 50 neutral mark and the MACD turned positive on Monday. Additionally, the triple exponential average [..]

Could Facebook’s Libra put central banks on the digital front first? – Special Report

Posted on September 27, 2019 at 10:38 am GMT

Facebook’s plans of launching its own cryptocurrency at some point next year raised the alarm in the central bank community, which already faces issues of meeting its objectives. However, what looks to be just an idea now, could turn  into a competitive game and a pivot point to the means of exchange if regulators pull the trigger. What is Libra? Since the unanimous release of the famous Bitcoin in 2009, there has been little progress in making cryptocurrencies well-recognized and acceptable means of [..]

Technical Analysis – US 30 index unable to log new record high, pulls back

Posted on September 26, 2019 at 2:59 pm GMT

The US 30 index came close to challenging its all-time high of 27,402 earlier this month, but did not quite reach that level, and subsequently pulled back. The inability of the bulls to log a new high reaffirms that the index is in a sideways market, with a push either above 27,402 or below 25,280 needed to change this neutral picture.   Momentum oscillators confirm the lack of direction, with the RSI being relatively flat near its neutral 50 line, [..]

Technical Analysis – Facebook stock consolidates, cautiously positive in medium term

Posted on September 26, 2019 at 12:09 pm GMT

Facebook’s stock has been trapped within a sideways range between 193.0 and 176.50 since early August, painting a neutral outlook in the short term. A break in either direction could therefore determine the bias. Overall, the structure of higher peaks and higher troughs is still in play on the daily chart, keeping the bigger picture positive for now, though a break below 161.0 would bring that into doubt. Momentum oscillators support the notion that the short-term bias is flat. The [..]

Technical Analysis – Could Apple stock break out of asymmetrical triangle ahead of products launch?

Posted on September 10, 2019 at 10:18 am GMT

Apple stock is edging higher ahead of the anticipated unveiling of new products later on Tuesday, including an updated iPhone. The company’s share price is trading around the upper boundary of an asymmetrical triangle and although the RSI and the MACD both reflect a bullish bias, the Stochastics are ready to print a bearish cross above the 80 overbought mark, signaling that a downside correction could be around the corner. Should the bulls close comfortably above the 215.00 ceiling and hence [..]

Technical analysis – Microsoft stock starts to ease after 7-month rally

Posted on September 2, 2019 at 4:13 pm GMT

Microsoft stock logged a high of 141.61 after a seven-month uptrend, before shifting into a one-month sideways move. The stock found support from the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the up leg from 94.48 to 141.61, of 130.50, as well as the 132.60 level, capped by resistance at 139.40.

Furthermore, the [..]

Technical Analysis – Google’s gains slip through fingers as sellers correct back down

Posted on September 2, 2019 at 3:31 pm GMT

Google stock collapsed from 1264 to 1139 after nearly revisiting the high of 26 July 2018 of 1269, evaporating all gains from the bullish gap of July 26 of this year. The price moved into a sideways market with upper and lower boundaries of 1203 and 1146 respectively. Despite the latest correction and consolidation phase, the incline since June 3 has painted a positive picture, something also reflected by the momentum indicators remaining in bullish territory. Furthermore, the 50- and [..]

Technical Analysis – Netflix stock collapses out of a 3-month trading range

Posted on August 30, 2019 at 2:22 pm GMT

Netflix stock plummeted out of a three-month sideways market breaching the lower boundary of 335.88, where the 200-day SMA also happened to lie. The stocks’ one-and-a-half-month plunge which started July 11, had the price retrace to around 287.09, slightly below 290.15, which is the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the up leg from 230.78 to 386.00. The MACD suggests an increase in positive directional momentum as it has moved above its red trigger line in the negative zone. The RSI [..]

Technical Analysis – Apple uptrend loses steam, may turn neutral soon

Posted on August 30, 2019 at 1:18 pm GMT

Apple’s stock touched a multi-month high at 221.5 at the end of July, but the price has retreated since then and recorded a lower high on the daily chart. This is an indication that the bigger uptrend may be losing steam. For the uptrend to resume, the bulls would need to push above 221.5. Short-term momentum oscillators are near their neutral levels, providing no clear directional signals. If buyers retake the driver’s seat, they may push towards 215.0 initially, this [..]
