The QQQ ETF price gained 2.15% on the last trading day (Tuesday, 14th Nov 2023), rising from $377.21 to $385.33. During the last trading day the ETF fluctuated 0.80% from a day low at $383.18 to a day high of $386.26. The price has risen in 8 of the last 10 days and is up by 9.82% 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, 25 million more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 65 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $24.95 billion.
Given the current horizontal trend, you can expect QQQ ETF with a 90% probability to be traded between $338.49 and $380.60 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 ETFS seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the top. ETFS turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners. Do note, that if the stock price manages to stay at current levels or higher, our prediction target will start to change positively over the next few days as the conditions for the current predictions will be broken.
Mostly positive signals in the chart today. The QQQ ETF 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 $375.12 and $362.74. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday, October 26, 2023, and so far it has risen 12.13%. 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.
On the downside, the ETF finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $364.70 and $359.97.There is a natural risk involved when a ETF is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the ETF then may fall to the next support level. In this case, QQQ finds support just below today's level at $364.70. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $359.97 and $343.66.
This ETF has average movements during the day and with good trading volume, the risk is considered to be medium. During the last day, the ETF moved $3.08 between high and low, or 0.80%. For the last week, the ETF has had daily average volatility of 1.17%.
The QQQ ETF is overbought on RSI14 and lies in the upper part of the trend. Normally this may pose a good selling opportunity for the short-term trader, but some ETFS may go long and hard while being overbought. Regardless, the high RSI together with the trend position increases the risk and higher daily movements (volatility) should be expected. A correction down in the nearby future seems very likely and it is of great importance that the ETF manages to break the trend before that occurs.
Several short-term signals are positive and we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity, as there is a fair chance for QQQ ETF to perform well in the short-term period.We have upgraded our analysis conclusion for this ETF since the last evaluation from a Hold/Accumulate to a Buy candidate.Check full QQQ forecast and analysis here.
