US30 stock index pierced below the uptrend line drawn from August 26 but found support from the 50-period simple moving average (SMA) around the 27,000 handle. The index has been in a two-week uptrend, during which it plotted a seven-week high of 27,312 from where the price inched down to test the uptrend line. The Ichimoku lines, Tenkan-sen and Kijun-sen, completed a bearish cross but signal no clear direction. The Chikou span is declining with the price, warning of a [..]

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 [..]

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 [..]


Technical Analysis – GER30 index consolidates above the 11,338 level; SMAs converge

Posted on August 28, 2019 at 3:31 pm GMT

The GER30 index has consolidated in a sideways market in the last 20 sessions, as the 50-period simple moving average (SMA) has flattened and blended with the 100-period SMA. The index has currently moved into the Ichimoku cloud, trading around the June low of 11,607. Directional momentum seems to have evaporated, something also reflected by the indicators. The MACD is flat at the zero line, combined with its red trigger line, while the RSI hovers at the 50-level. Furthermore, the [..]


Technical Analysis – US30 index takes back losses; 50-, 100-SMAs stop bullish move

Posted on August 26, 2019 at 3:54 pm GMT

US30 stock index adopted a sideways behavior after falling from the 27,403 all-time-high to a two-month low of 25,077. It is noteworthy to point out that despite the breaches from the price, the 200-, 100- and 50-period simple moving averages (SMAs) still maintain the bearish picture. In momentum indicators, both the RSI and the MACD are in bearish territory, suggesting that a rekindled negative move cannot be ruled out; the RSI deflected off the 50-level and heads down, whilst the MACD is below [..]


Technical Analysis – Alibaba stock rushes to recoup losses ahead of Q2 earnings release

Posted on August 13, 2019 at 2:33 pm GMT

Alibaba’s stock price found enough footing near the 23.6% Fibonacci of the 147.82-179.33 upleg to surge above the 20-period simple moving average (SMA) in the four-hour chart. The rising MACD and the positive slope in the RSI, which is ready to exit the bearish territory, are encouraging signs for the market’s short-term performance. Should the 61.8% Fibonacci of 167.28 open the gate to the bulls, the 50-period SMA at 169.25 could next take control. Slightly higher, the area between 172.00 and [..]


Technical Analysis – WalMart breaches uptrend line; 100-day SMA obstructs the drop

Posted on August 13, 2019 at 1:12 pm GMT

WalMart stock pulled back from a high of 115.26 after nearly eight months of advances, piercing below the uptrend line. The downwards correction has stalled at the 100-day simple moving average (SMA) after its push lower off 108.36, which is the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the up leg from 86.07 to 115.26. It’s worth mentioning that the 20-day SMA has crossed below the 40-day SMA, signaling that the short-term bearish bias seems to be holding. The momentum indicators are [..]
