On August 18, 2021 "Stifel Nicolaus" gave "$260.00" rating for BABA. The price target was changed from $173.73 to 4.9%.
The stock has broken the wide and falling short-term trend down. Firstly a stronger fallrate is indicated, but false breaks and "sell-off" may occur. However, a further fall is realistic and any reactions back to the breaking point ($175.60) are considered to be a "second chance" to get out. According to the fan-theory $143.28 will represent the new bottom line of the next trend, but it is far too early to say this for certain.
There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The Alibaba stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $175.37 and $197.76. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, August 04, 2021, and so far it has fallen -21.30%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 months Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.
There is no support from accumulated volume below today's level and given the right condition the stock may perform very badly in the next couple of days.
This stock has average movements during the day and with good trading volume, the risk is considered to be medium. During the last day, the stock moved $11.43 between high and low, or 7.35%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 3.89%.
Alibaba is oversold on RSI14 (8). Some stocks may fall long and hard while being oversold on RSI, but stocks that are heavily oversold on RSI often pose good re-bounce chance and played well it can be a buy candidate.
Alibaba holds several negative signals and is within a wide and falling trend, so we believe it will still perform weakly in the next couple of days or weeks. We therefore hold a negative evaluation of this stock.Check full Alibaba forecast and analysis here.
