Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -30.12% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $93.72 and $114.57 at the end of this 3-month period. Do note, that if the stock price manages to stay at current levels or higher, our prediction target will start to change positively over the next few days as the conditions for the current predictions will be broken.
Mostly positive signals in the chart today. The Alibaba stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a positive forecast for the stock, but the stock has a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections down, there will be some support from the lines at $150.36 and $158.66. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Monday, October 04, 2021, and so far it has risen 17.42%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.
Alibaba finds support from accumulated volume at $161.06 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
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 $5.85 between high and low, or 3.57%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 3.70%.
Since the Alibaba has been rising for 6 days in a row, the risk over the next couple of days has increased. We don't expect a major reaction as the stock is in very good shape technically, and therefore hold a positive evaluation despite the very short term risk.
Several short-term signals are positive, despite the stock being in a falling trend, we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for stock to perform well in the short-term.Check full Alibaba forecast and analysis here.
