Green day on Wednesday for AppleStockInvest.us, 2 months ago
The Apple stock price gained 0.98% on the last trading day (Wednesday, 3rd Nov 2021), rising from $150.02 to $151.49. , and has now gained 3 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days. During the day the stock fluctuated 1.44% from a day low at $149.82 to a day high of $151.97. The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a 1.49% gain for the last 2 weeks. Volume fell on the last day by -15 million shares and in total, 54 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $8.18 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 Nov 02, 2021 "The Goldman Sachs Group" gave "$142.00" rating for AAPL. The price target was set to $150.16+0.8%.
The stock is moving within a wide and horizontal trend and further movements within this trend can be expected. Given the current horizontal trend, you can expect Apple stock with a 90% probability to be traded between $136.16 and $152.73 at the end of this 3-month period. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the top. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
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 $150.14 and $145.71. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. 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. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday, October 28, 2021, and so far it has fallen -0.71%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found.
Apple finds support from accumulated volume at $148.97 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
This stock is usually traded at a good volume, and with minor daily changes, the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $2.15 (1.44%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.88%.
