Facebook lies in the lower part of a weak rising trend in the short term, and this will normally pose a very good buying opportunity. A break down the bottom trend line at $178.39 will firstly indicate a slower raising rate, but may also be a early warning for a trend shift. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 5.21% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between $187.69 and $203.81 at the end of this period.

There are few to none technical positive signals at the moment. Facebook holds sales signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. On corrections up there will be some resistance from the lines at $186.50 and $183.34. A break-up above any of these levels will issue buy signals. A sales signal was issued from a pivot top point on Thursday February 01, 2018, which indicates further falls until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.

Facebook holds several negative signals and this should give a sell recommendation, but due to the general chance for a turnaround situation we recommend to hold or accumulate whilst awaiting for further development. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Buy Candidate to a Hold/Accumulate.
