Signals & Forecast

A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, and so far it has fallen -3.67%. 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). Some positive signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. The Principal Financial Group Inc stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a positive forecast for the stock, but the stock has a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections down, there will be some support from the lines at $69.67 and $69.71. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals.
