The Boeing Company (NYSE:BA) 737 Max Down For Another Month?

American Airlines cancelled flights related to the Boeing 737 MAX through April 24. That’s roughly 90 American Airlines flights per day. That suggests that the U.S. won’t clear the 737 Max for at least another months.

U.S. air safety regulators tentatively approved Boeing 737 Max software and pilot-training fixes, the Wall Street Journal reported Saturday, citing sources and documents. The fixes would give pilots more control over a less-aggressive automated stall-prevention system. Training would focus on how the system works and how to shut it down.

The FAA may get the Boeing 737 Max operating in U.S. skies in several weeks. Europe and other big aviation authorities could take months to review the changes.

A big Boeing 737 Max order has been cancelled already. More cancellations are likely. New Boeing 737 Max orders will surely dry up for months. Meanwhile, a Boeing criminal probe of the FAA’s approval of the 737 Max is underway. A Senate panel hearing will discus aviation safety oversight Wednesday.

Boeing stock fell 4.4% last week after tumbling 10% in the prior week.

Momentum Indicators

Momentum is a general term used to describe the speed at which prices move over a given time period. Generally, changes in momentum tend to lead to changes in prices. This expert shows the current values of four popular momentum indicators.

Stochastic Oscillator

One method of interpreting the Stochastic Oscillator is looking for overbought areas (above 80) and oversold areas (below 20). The Stochastic Oscillator is 28.8476. This is not an overbought or oversold reading. The last signal was a buy 5 period(s) ago.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 29.98. This is where it usually bottoms. The RSI usually forms tops and bottoms before the underlying security. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 13 period(s) ago.

Commodity Channel Index (CCI)

The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is -83. This is not a topping or bottoming area. The last signal was a buy 5 period(s) ago.


The Moving Average Convergence/Divergence indicator (MACD) gives signals when it crosses its 9 period signal line. The last signal was a sell 14 period(s) ago.
