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 [..]

Posted on May 14, 2018 at 7:52 am GMT

Here are the latest developments in global markets: FOREX: The US dollar index is lower by 0.15% on Monday, extending the losses it posted on Friday.

STOCKS: US markets closed mostly higher on Friday. The Dow Jones and the S&P 500 rose by 0.37% and 0.17% respectively [..]

Stock Market News – Amazon hits record high above $1,500; market’s valuation equivalent to more than 2.5 Walmarts

Posted on February 22, 2018 at 2:58 pm GMT

Retail giant Amazon reached a fresh all-time high during Wednesday’s trading, exceeding $1,500. By the end of the session it lost some ground amid a broader market retreat, though it still finished the day higher, with its market capitalization settling at $717.9 billion. For a bit of perspective, retailer Walmart, whose stock price recorded losses after delivering an earnings miss earlier in the week, has a market cap of $271.1bn. Amazon is thus valued as 2.6 Walmarts at the moment. [..]
