Latest GOOG market sentiment
A pseudonymous trading expert on Twitter, Nebraskangooner, shared his positive sentiment toward Google stock on May 1. The trader noted that Google’s chart is ‘one of the nicer-looking ones’ in the market, and its AI technology and positive earnings help make it a strong investment opportunity.
Nebraskangooner noted a pattern with the 99sma, also known as the 99-day Simple Moving Average. The 99sma, a commonly used technical analysis tool in the stock market, helps traders to determine the overall trend of a stock.
In the case of Google’s stock, the recent dip provided traders with an opportunity to retest the 99sma. This means the stock price fell below the 99-day moving average, giving traders a chance to buy at a potentially discounted price. The fact that the stock is now consolidating tightly above the 99sma is a positive sign for traders who are bullish on the stock.
However, it is important to note that investing in the stock market always comes with risks. The bullish bias towards Google’s stock can only remain intact, according to the trader, if the stock price does not drop by more than 4%.
