Price Charts and Technical Analysis
The GOOG stock triangle chart pattern completed an ABC (green) within a shallow wave 4 pullback.
Price action bounced at the 38.2% Fibonacci level and has already reached the -27.2% Fibonacci target. What can be expected next?
- No divergence pattern is visible so far. This means that the uptrend remains strong and impulsive, which is indicating that bulls remain in control.
- The current bullish price swing is part of a larger wave 3 (pink) of wave 3 (purple), which indicates that more upside is likely.
- A full uptrend is visible with a clear uptrend channel (green lines) and moving averages aligned with the 21 ema above the 144 ema and above the 233 and 610 EMAs.
- Considering the strong price push away from the 21 ema, it is likely that the Fibonacci levels of the most recent price swing will act as support and cause a bounce (green arrows) if a pullback occurs (orange arrows).
- The next targets are located at $2400, $2500, and $2600.
On the 4 hour chart, we can see multiple waves 3 already appear in the recent past. This is indicating a strong uptrend.
- Currently price is in a wave 3 (green). Price could continue higher within wave 3.
- Eventually now or later, a shallow pullback (orange arrows) could confirm the end of the wave 3 (green) and the start the wave 4 (green).
- The Fibonacci levels are expected to act as support for a bounce (green arrows).
- A break below the previous tops (green box) could place the current wave outlook on hold (orange circle) or invalidate it (red circle).
- A deeper retracement does not mean that the uptrend is over. Price action could still bounce at the 144 ema close.
