FB is looking decidedly more bullish from a technical perspective. Shares have completely closed the post earnings gap and bounced off major horizontal support at $245. The nine-day relative strength index (RSI) reached oversold levels but has since strengthened. Previous instances when this happened marked significant short-term lows in Facebook stock.
Moving average convergence divergence (MACD) got to the lowest readings of the past year but has turned higher. Momentum also was at the most extreme negative sentiment before it too popped sharply upward.
Facebook stock is trading at the steepest discount to the 20-day moving average in the prior 12 months. Each time this took place in the past year it inevitably led to a rally back to the average. Look for a similar scenario to unfold once again over the coming weeks.
