The price has risen in 6 of the last 10 days and is up by 0.54% over the past 2 weeks. Volume has increased in the last day by 8.01 million shares, but on falling prices.

- 52 week high for the Microsoft Corporation - $131.37 and low - $93.96.
Microsoft Corporation lies in the lower part of a 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 $125.75 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 15.9% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $145.75 and $157.28 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 Thursday May 16, 2019, 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. Microsoft Corporation 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 $127.14. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $124.95. 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.
* 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.

Microsoft Corporation holds several positive signals, but we still don't find these to be enough for a buy-recommendation. At the current level we recommend to hold or accumulate in this position whilst awaiting for further development. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Buy Candidate to a Hold/Accumulate.
The general sentiment holds a neutral evaluation of the stock right now. The sentiment is based upon 54 votes on StockTwits.
