Procter & Gamble Company (The) fell by -0.06%in the last day from $78.73 to $78.68 and has now fallen 4 days in a row. The price has fallen in 6 of the last 10 days and is down by -0.79%for this period. Volume has increased in the last day by 0.23 million shares, but on falling prices. This may be an early warning and the risk will be increased slightly for the next couple of days. In total, 8.23 million shares bought and sold for approximately $647.90 million.
Procter & Gamble Company (The) lies in the lower part of a narrow and 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 $78.01 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 11.76%during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $87.18 and $90.97 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 Tuesday July 17, 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.
Procter & Gamble Company (The) 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 $79.27. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately $77.46. 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.
