StockInvest.us, 1 month ago

Apple

The Apple stock price gained 1.93% on the last trading day (Tuesday, 29th Mar 2022), rising from $175.60 to $178.99. , and has now gained 11 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 day the stock fluctuated 1.50% from a day low at $176.36 to a day high of $179.01. The price has risen in 10 of the last 10 days and is up by 15.41% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased on the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 38 million more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 38 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $6.79 billion.

On Mar 25, 2022 "Evercore ISI" gave "$210.00" rating for AAPL. The price target was set to $174.72+0.4%.

The stockhas broken the wide and falling short-term trend up. Firstly a slower falling rate is indicated, but this may very well be an early signal of a trend shift. On the reaction, there will be support on the roof of the current trend broken, which is $170.83, a level that may pose a second chance to hit a runner. According to fan-theory $192.85 will be the next possible trend-top level and thereby pose a resistance level that may not be broken at the first attempt.

Apple

The Apple 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 $172.54 and $165.98. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Monday, March 14, 2022, and so far it has risen 18.84%. 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.

Apple finds support from accumulated volume at $172.19 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 $2.65 between high and low, or 1.50%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.07%.

Since the Apple has been rising for 11 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.

Apple 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.
