Red day on Friday for Palantir, 2 weeks ago


The Palantir stock price fell by -2.55% on the last day (Friday, 10th May 2024) from $21.14 to $20.60. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 4.24% from a day low at $20.50 to a day high of $21.37. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days but is still down by -8.53% for this period. Volume has increased on the last day by 4 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, 58 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $1.19 billion.

On May 07, 2024, it was reported that HSBC gave PLTR a "Hold" grade with a "hold" action.

The stock lies in the lower of a very wide and falling trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good buying opportunity. If the lower trend floor at $19.62 is broken, it will firstly indicate a stronger fall rate.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -12.32% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $17.20 and $21.91 at the end of this 3-month period.


Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Palantir 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 $22.26 and $22.47. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Monday, May 06, 2024, and so far it has fallen -18.29%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.

Palantir finds support from accumulated volume at $20.47 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

This stock has average movements during the day and with good trading volume, the risk is considered to be medium. During the last day, the stock moved $0.87 between high and low, or 4.24%. For the last week, the stock has had daily average volatility of 4.46%.

Palantir 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.
