The stock has broken the 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 ($279.67) are considered to be a "second chance" to get out. According to the fan-theory $230.18 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 Meta Platforms, 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 $289.49 and $320.43. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, February 02, 2022, and so far it has fallen -26.60%. 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 fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.
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 $12.50 between high and low, or 5.43%. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 4.28%.
Meta Platforms, Inc. is oversold on RSI14 (21). Some stocks may drop long and hard while being oversold on RSI before turning, which increases the general risk.
Meta Platforms, Inc. holds several negative signals and is within a 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.Check full Meta Platforms, Inc. forecast and analysis here.
