META

The META stock price gained 3.21% on the last trading day (Friday, 5th Apr 2024), rising from $510.92 to $527.34. It has now gained 5 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 last trading day the stock fluctuated 3.17% from a day low at $514.41 to a day high of $530.70. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days and is up by 3.86% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell on the last day by -7 million shares and in total, 19 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $10.10 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 Apr 04, 2024, it was reported that Jefferies gave META a "Buy" grade with a "hold" action.

The stock lies in the middle of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 36.61% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $680.93 and $800.03 at the end of this 3-month period.

META

The META 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 $501.88 and $494.23. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday, March 28, 2024, and so far it has risen 8.60%. 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.

On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $484.03 and $474.99.There is a natural risk involved when a stock is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the stock then may fall to the next support level. In this case, META finds support just below today's level at $484.03. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $474.99 and $459.41.

In general the stock tends to have very controlled movements and with good liquidity the risk is considered very low in this stock. During the last day, the stock moved $16.29 between high and low, or 3.17%. For the last week the stock has had daily average volatility of 2.91%.

META 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.Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Strong Buy to a Hold/Accumulate candidate.
