StockInvest.us, 1 month ago


The SPY ETF price gained 0.755% on the last trading day (Thursday, 11th Apr 2024), rising from $514.12 to $518.00. During the last trading day the ETF fluctuated 1.44% from a day low at $512.09 to a day high of $519.48. The price has been going up and down for this period, and there has been a -0.99% loss for the last 2 weeks. Volume fell on the last day by -15 million shares and in total, 63 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $32.79 billion. You should take into consideration that falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes over the next couple of days.

The ETF lies in the lower part of a narrow and weak rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good buying opportunity. If the lower trend floor at $514.86 is broken, it will firstly indicate a slower rate of rising, but may also be an early warning for a trend shift.Given the current short-term trend, the ETF is expected to rise 9.34% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $562.93 and $580.12 at the end of this 3-month period.


There are mixed signals in the ETF today. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, and so far it has fallen -0.99%. 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). The SPY 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 $517.30 and $514.84. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and it may be an early warning. The ETF should be watched closely.

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 $7.39 between high and low, or 1.44%. For the last week the ETF has had daily average volatility of 1.03%.

Several short-term signals, along with a general good trend, are positive and we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for SPY ETF to perform well in the short-term.We have upgraded our analysis conclusion for this ETF since the last evaluation from a Sell to a Buy candidate.
