Moody's Corporation Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Thu 21'st Sep 2017

Buy candidate since 2017-08-17 Gain 4.94%

Moody's Corporation fell by -0.09% in the last day from $136.77 to $136.65 The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days and is up by 1.81% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell in the last day along with the stock, which is actually a good sign as volume should follow the stock. In the last day the trading volume fell by -187 313 shares and in total 419 338 shares bought and sold for approximately $57.30 million.

Trend

Moody's Corporation lies in the middle of a strong rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 12.28% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $150.63 and $161.77 at the end of this period.

Signals

Moody's Corporation 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 $136.23 and $132.67. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday September 20, 2017, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.

RSI14 is 68 and the stock is currently not being overbought or oversold
