Red day on Thursday for SPY ETF after losing 0.221%

StockInvest.us, 2 months ago


The SPY ETF price fell by -0.221% on the last day (Thursday, 18th Apr 2024) from $500.55 to $499.45. It has now fallen 5 days in a row. During the last trading day the ETF fluctuated 1.12% from a day low at $498.56 to a day high of $504.13. The price has fallen in 6 of the last 10 days and is down by -2.67% for this period. Volume fell on the last day along with the ETF, which is actually a good sign as volume should follow the ETF. On the last day, the trading volume fell by -3 million shares and in total, 67 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $33.64 billion.

Given the current short-term trend, the ETF is expected to rise 6.44% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $531.61 and $565.13 at the end of this 3-month period.


There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The SPY ETF 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 $507.29 and $514.39. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, and so far it has fallen -4.53%. 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.

SPY finds support from accumulated volume at $494.08 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.

In general the ETF tends to have very controlled movements and with good liquidity the risk is considered very low in this stock. During the last day, the ETF moved $5.57 between high and low, or 1.12%. For the last week the ETF has had daily average volatility of 1.41%.

SPY is oversold on RSI14 (24). Some ETFS may drop long and hard while being oversold on RSI before turning, which increases the general risk.

SPY holds several negative signals and this should be a sell candidate, but due to the general chance for a turnaround situation it should be considered as a hold candidate (hold or accumulate) in this position whilst awaiting further development.
