Allstate Corporation (The) Stock Analysis
Technical stock analysis for Wed 26'th Jul 2017
Hold candidate since 2017-07-25 Loss -0.90%
Allstate Corporation (The) lies in the lower part of a narrow and weak rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $89.18 will firstly indicate a slower raising rate, but may also be a early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 8.15% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $96.45 and $100.44 at the end of this period.
There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Tuesday July 25, 2017, which indicates further falls 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. Allstate Corporation (The) holds a sales signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term moving average at approximately $89.41. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $88.64. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sales signal.
