Technical Analysis – Coca-Cola stock reaches 2-month high; bullish actions back into play

Posted on April 23, 2019 at 1:21 pm GMT

Coca-cola stock price advanced above the Ichimoku cloud over the last couple of trading days, challenging a two-month high around the 47.50 resistance. The MACD oscillator rose above its trigger line in the daily timeframe, while the stochastic is flattening in the overbought territory, suggesting overstretched market. A failure to overcome the two-month high of 47.50 barrier could send the price down to the upper surface of the Ichimoku cloud around 47.16.

Technical Analysis – Coca Cola stock cautiously positive, eyes record highs

Posted on February 13, 2019 at 4:21 pm GMT

Coca Cola’s stock has been in recovery mode since late December, recently crossing back above its 50-day simple moving average (SMA). The medium-term picture currently seems cautiously positive, and for it to shift to clearly positive, it would require a decisive break above the all-time high of 50.74. Short-term oscillators support a somewhat positive outlook. The RSI is near its 70 zone, but seems to have flatlined, while the MACD remains firmly above its red trigger line. Further advances in [..]

Posted on December 13, 2018 at 1:43 pm GMT

Coca-Cola stock price hit an all-time high of 50.74 last month before stabilizing slightly lower and is set to finish higher by 7.0% in the year. Yet, with the 20-day simple moving average losing steam, the upward pattern might not extend further, while momentum indicators are also not as positive as before, pointing to weaker trading sessions in the near term; the MACD keeps falling below its red signal line and towards zero, whilst the RSI has reversed back to the downside [..]
