Broadcom

The Broadcom stock price gained 3.34% on the last trading day (Friday, 14th Jun 2024), rising from $1,678.99 to $1,735.04. It has now gained 6 days in a row. It is not often that stocks manage to gain so many days in a row, and falls for a day or two should be expected. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 3.86% from a day low at $1,682.10 to a day high of $1,746.96. The price has risen in 8 of the last 10 days and is up by 30.6% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell on the last day by -2 million shares and in total, 7 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $11.33 billion. You should take into consideration that falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes over the next couple of days.

On Jun 13, 2024, it was reported that CFRA gave AVGO a "Buy" grade with a "hold" action.

The stock has broken the wide and strong rising the short-term trend up and an even stronger rate of rising is indicated. For any reaction back there will now be support on the roof on the current trend broken at $1,511.82, a level that may pose a second chance to hit a runner.

Broadcom

The Broadcom stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term Moving Averages giving a positive forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down, there will be some support from the lines at $1,516.99 and $1,384.80. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Friday, April 19, 2024, and so far it has risen 44.02%. 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 fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and it may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely.

Broadcom finds support from accumulated volume at $1,678.99 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 $64.86 between high and low, or 3.86%. For the last week, the stock has had daily average volatility of 3.43%.

The Broadcom stock is extremely overbought on RSI14 (81). Normally this may pose a good selling opportunity but since the stock has broken the trend up, the chance for a major correction due to high RSI is very small as the stock will find support at the trend broken.Since the Broadcom has been rising for 6 days in a row, the risk over the next couple of days has increased. As we cannot be certain with regards to the size of the reaction, we urge caution.

Broadcom holds several positive signals, but we still don't find these to be enough for a buy candidate. At the current level, it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development.
