A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Wednesday, April 27, 2022, and so far it has risen 14.59%. Further rise is indicated until a new top pivot has been found. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Meta Platforms, Inc. 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 $209.87. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $188.75. 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). Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.
Meta Platforms, Inc. finds support from accumulated volume at $198.45 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
