There are few to no technical positive signals at the moment. The Meta Platforms, Inc. 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 $190.40 and $209.51. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Monday, April 04, 2022, and so far it has fallen -25.20%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Furthermore, there is currently a sell signal from the 3 month 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.
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.
