The stockis moving within a wide and horizontal trend and further movements within this trend can be expected. Given the current horizontal trend, you can expect Microsoft stock with a 90% probability to be traded between $204.17 and $236.45 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 roof. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
Mostly positive signals in the chart today. The Microsoft stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term moving averages.
