LPL Financial Holdings Inc. lies in the lower part of a wide and strong rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $73.67 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 28.2% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $94.45 and $109.70 at the end of this period.
Only positive signals in the chart today. LPL Financial Holdings Inc. holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages, 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 $73.81 and $75.27. 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. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely.
