The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a -44.12% loss for the last 2 weeks. Volume has increased on the last day by 246 million shares but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly over the next couple of days. In total, 286 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $3.66 billion.

The last rating was given by B of A Securities on May 24, 2022. The price target was changed from 12.79 to 43.08.Over the last 90 days, this security got 4 buy, 27 sell, and 0 hold ratings.

The stock has broken the very wide and falling short-term trend down. Firstly a stronger fallrate is indicated, but false breaks and "sell-off" may occur. However, a further fall is realistic and any reactions back to the breaking point ($15.90) are considered to be a "second chance" to get out. According to the fan-theory $0.92 will represent the new bottom line of the next trend, but it is far too early to say this for certain.


There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The Snap Inc. stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a more negative forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $21.77 and $28.30. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Monday, April 04, 2022, and so far it has fallen -67.49%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

There is no support from accumulated volume below today's level and given the right condition the stock may perform very badly in the next couple of days.

This stock may move much during the day (volatility) and with a large prediction interval from the Bollinger Band this stock is considered to be "high risk". During the last day, the stock moved $2.02 between high and low, or 16.10%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 9.53%.

Snap Inc. is oversold on RSI14 (17). Some stocks may drop long and hard while being oversold on RSI before turning, which increases the general risk.

Snap Inc. holds several negative signals and is within a very wide and falling trend, so we believe it will still perform weakly in the next couple of days or weeks. We therefore hold a negative evaluation of this stock.
