Prudential Financial Inc has broken the wide and falling short-term trend up. Firstly a slower falling rate is indicated, but this may very well be an early signal of a trend shift. On the reaction there will be support on the roof on the current trend broken, which is $106.80, a level that may pose a second chance to hit a runner. According to fan-theory $123.62 will be the next possible trendtop level and thereby pose a resistance level which may not be broken on the first attempt.

There are mixed signals in the stock today. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday April 19, 2018, 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. Prudential Financial 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 $105.60 and $105.65. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals.

Prudential Financial Inc finds support from accumulated volume at $106.89. On the upside the stock meets some resistance just above today's level from accumulated volume at $108.65, $109.89 and $110.99.

The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at $108.65 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.

Prudential Financial Inc 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.
