The stock lies in the lower part of a very 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 $400.02 is broken, it will firstly indicate a slower rising rate, but may also be an early warning for a trend shift.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 37.41% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $549.67 and $808.56 at the end of this 3-month period.

Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and it may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development.
