SK Telecom Co Ltd gained 0.90% in the last trading day, rising from $26.57 to $26.81 , and has now gained 3 days in a row. It will be exciting to see whether it manages to continue gaining or take a minor break for the next few days. The price has risen in 5 of the last 10 days , but is still down by -0.7% for this period. Volume has increased in the last day along with the price, which is a positive technical sign, and, in total, 179 643 more shares were traded than the day before. In total, 431 103 shares bought and sold for approximately $11.56 million.


SK Telecom Co Ltd 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 $26.43 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 14.51% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $30.26 and $32.94 at the end of this period.

Only positive signals in the chart today. SK Telecom Co Ltd 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 $26.73 and $26.81. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday October 11, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.
