The stock is moving within a wide and horizontal trend and further movements within this trend can be expected. Given the current horizontal trend, you can expect Alphabet Inc. stock with a 90% probability to be traded between $1 430.67 and $1 748.78 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 stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the roof. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
The Alphabet Inc. stock holds a sales signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term moving average at approximately $1 589.74. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $1 515.87. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sales signal. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 months Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Friday, October 23, 2020, and so far it has fallen -4.49%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found.
