The stock lies in the lower part of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good buying opportunity. If the lower trend floor at $287.19 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 stock is expected to rise 19.07% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $341.95 and $384.35 at the end of this 3-month period.
There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The Alibaba stock holds sell signals from both short and long-term moving averages. On corrections up, there will be some resistance from the lines at $300.72 and $295.12. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday, October 27, 2020, and so far it has fallen -9.27%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 months Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.
