Very red day for Alibaba stock price after -9.14% fall in Thursday trading sessionStockInvest.us, 2 weeks ago
The Alibaba stock price fell by -9.14% on the last day (Thursday, 16th Nov 2023) from $87.07 to $79.11. During the last trading day the stock fluctuated 3.25% from a day low at $78.23 to a day high of $80.77. The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days but is still down by -5.16% for this period. Volume has increased on the last day by 35 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, 62 million shares were bought and sold for approximately $4.90 billion.
On Oct 10, 2023, it was reported that Benchmark gave BABA a "Buy" grade with a "hold" action.
The stock lies in the middle of a wide and falling trend in the short term and further fall within the trend is signaled.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to fall -10.28% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $69.07 and $77.98 at the end of this 3-month period. Do note, that if the stock price manages to stay at current levels or higher, our prediction target will start to change positively over the next few days as the conditions for the current predictions will be broken.
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 Alibaba 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 $83.23 and $83.79. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, and so far it has fallen -9.14%. 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.
There is no support from accumulated volume below today's level and given the right condition the stock may perform very badly in the next couple of days.
This stock is usually traded at a good volume, and with minor daily changes, the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $2.54 (3.25%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had daily average volatility of 2.23%.
Alibaba holds several negative signals and is within a 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.Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our analysis conclusion for this stock since the last evaluation from a Buy to a Sell candidate.Check full Alibaba forecast and analysis here.
