Mostly positive signals in the chart today. The Microsoft stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a positive forecast for the stock, but the stock has a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections down, there will be some support from the lines at $288.47 and $295.39. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday, March 08, 2022, and so far it has risen 8.91%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.

Microsoft finds support from accumulated volume at $296.71 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
