Signals and Predictions

Palo Alto Networks Inc stock is holding a sell signal from the short-term moving average; however, at the same time, the long-term average is giving a buy signal. The stock has a bullish outlook as the short-term average is above the long-term average, with buy signals prevailing. Any further gains would see the stock encounter resistance near the short-term moving average at $616.34. On the decline, the stock found some support near the long-term average of $574.17. A breakout of the short-term average gives a buy signal, while a break of the long-term average gives a sell signal. Also, a buy signal from the 3-month moving average convergence-divergence (MACD). There are also some negative signals that may have some impact on recent developments. On Monday, April 4, 2022, a sell signal was issued from the top of the pivot, down -3.16% year to date. The display drops further until a new lower pivot is found. On the last trading day, volume falls with price, which reduces overall risk because volume should follow price.
