Alleghany Corp is the upper part of a horizontal trend and normally this would pose a good selling opportunity, but a break-up through the top trend line at $651.55 will give a strong buy signal and a trend shift may be expected. Given the current horizontal trend you can expect Alleghany Corp with 90% probability to be traded between $591.06 and $639.95 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.

Alleghany Corp 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 $641.92 and $621.10. 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 Tuesday April 23, 2019, 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.
