Prudential Financial Inc is the upper part of a wide and horizontal trend and normally this would pose a good selling opportunity, but a break-up through the top trend line at £1 578.07 will give a strong buy signal and a trend shift may be expected. Given the current horizontal trend you can expect Prudential Financial Inc with 90% probability to be traded between £1 344.62 and £1 581.54 at the end of this period with 90% probability. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the roof. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
Prudential Financial Inc 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 £1 516.21 and £1 471.63. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. 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. 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 February 13, 2019, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found.
