Sell candidate since Jul 18, 2024 Gain 1.02% PDF

The Microsoft stock price increased 0.431% on the most recent trading day (Tuesday, 23rd Jul 2024), climbing from $442.94 to $444.85. Throughout the last trading day, the stock experienced a fluctuation of 1.19%, with a day low at $443.10 and a day high of $448.39. Over the past 10 days, the price has decreased on 6 occasions and is down -3.2% during this timeframe. Volume decreased on the last day by -3 million shares, with a total of 12 million shares traded, amounting to approximately $5.45 billion. It is important to note that declining volume alongside rising prices may indicate divergence and could serve as an early warning of potential changes in the coming days.

The stock lies in the lower part of a strong rising trend in the short term, and this may normally pose a very good buying opportunity. If the lower trend floor at $439.07 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 14.24% during the next 3 months and, with a 90% probability hold a price between $501.58 and $547.55 at the end of this 3-month period.

MSFT Signals & Forecast

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. The Microsoft 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 $445.30. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $444.61. 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. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Friday, July 05, 2024, and so far it has fallen -4.86%. 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).

Support, Risk & Stop-loss for Microsoft stock

On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at $415.13 and $406.32. There is a natural risk involved when a stock is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the stock then may fall to the next support level. In this case, Microsoft finds support just below today's level at $415.13. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at $406.32 and $399.04.

In general the stock tends to have very controlled movements and with good liquidity the risk is considered very low in this stock. During the last day, the stock moved $5.29 between high and low, or 1.19%. For the last week the stock has had daily average volatility of 1.65%.

Our recommended stop-loss: We hold a negative evaluation for this stock. No stop-loss is set.

Trading Expectations (MSFT) For The Upcoming Trading Day Of Wednesday 24th

For the upcoming trading day on Wednesday, 24th we expect Microsoft Corporation to open at $445.45, and during the day (based on 14 day Average True Range), to move between $437.27 and $452.43, which gives a possible trading interval of +/-$7.58 (+/-1.70%) up or down from last closing price. If Microsoft Corporation takes out the full calculated possible swing range there will be an estimated 3.41% move between the lowest and the highest trading price during the day.

Since the stock is closer to the resistance from accumulated volume at $446.95 (0.47%) than the support at $415.13 (6.68%), our systems don't find the trading risk/reward intra-day attractive and any bets should be held until the stock is closer to the support level.
