A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, and so far it has risen 36.76%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. 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. The Alibaba stock holds a buy signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, the long-term average holds a general sell signal. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sell signal in the stock giving a more negative forecast for the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $110.99. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $91.08. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sell signal and strengthen the general signal. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD).
Alibaba finds support from accumulated volume at $100.60 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
