Micron Shares – Technical Analysis
Ahead of the release of its results, Micron’s stock price is attempting to break above a downtrend line that has held up to price three times. The MACD indicator has formed higher lows, potentially suggesting that the selling momentum is slowing down and the short-term downtrend may be susceptible to a reversal.
That said, prices may need to overcome a key resistance level at US $ 84.00 to continue rising. This comes on the back of the 50 day MA which now served as a resistance line, coinciding with the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level. Short term support can be US $ 76.00, where prices remain supported on the three previous occasions.
