Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 13.13% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between £5 119.44 and £5 452.26 at the end of this period.
Intercontinental Hotels Group plc holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, 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 £4 547.57 and £4 525.83. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Friday March 08, 2019, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Volume rose on falling prices yesterday. This may be an early warning and the stock should be followed more closely.
* Golden Star Signal* is when the short-term moving average, the long-term moving average, and price line meet in a special combination. This combination is very rare and often followed by long and strong gains for the stock in question.
