The Microsoft 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 $320.91 and $324.98. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals.
