A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday February 08, 2018, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal. Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. Walt Disney Company (The) holds a buysignal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, a sales signal from the long-term average. Since the longterm average is above the short-term average there is a general sales signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the long-term moving average at $108.80. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the short-term average at $104.04. A break-up through the long-term average will give another buy signal, while a fall below the short-term average will add another sales signal and strengthen the general signal.

This stock is usually traded at good volume, and with minor daily changes the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $2.16 (2.05%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.00%.

Since the Walt Disney Company (The) has been rising for 7 days in a row, the risk for the next couple of days has increased. As we cannot be certain with regards to the size of the reaction, we urge caution.

Our recommended stoploss: $101.04 (-5.15%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 6 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High

At the current level we recommend to hold or accumulate in this position whilst awaiting for further development. We have upgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Sell Candidate to a Hold/Accumulate.
