The stock lies in the upper part of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good selling opportunity for the short-term trader as reaction back towards the lower part of the trend can be expected. A break-up at the top trend line at $50.56 will firstly indicate a stronger rate of rising.Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 20.49% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $51.88 and $60.92 at the end of this 3-month period.
The Pfizer Inc stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a positive forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down, there will be some support from the lines at $48.41 and $42.96. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 months Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday, August 17, 2021, and so far it has fallen -2.20%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.
Pfizer Inc finds support from accumulated volume at $48.19 and this level may hold a buying opportunity as an upwards reaction can be expected when the support is being tested.
