Facebook (FB)

A firm June rebound from above a key March support at 159.28 (from 160.24) has neutralised the intermediate-term bear trend that was set up with the May surrender of the bull trend line from late 2018 and through 178.10.

This leaves an intermediate-term range we see as 188.57 to 160.84, BUT with the June risks skewed towards an intermediate-term bullish shift above 188.57.

Intermediate-term Range Breakout Parameters: Range seen as 188.57 to 160.84.

  • Upside Risks: Above 188.57 sets a bull trend to aim for 198.48, 200.00 and the record high at 218.62.
  • Downside Risks: Below 160.84 sees a bear trend to quickly target 159.28 and 150.95, then 142.52 and maybe 123.02.

Netflix (NFLX)

An erratic consolidation theme has developed from mid-May since the reversal below the tentative topping trend line from early 2019.

This leaves an intermediate-term range we see as 370.46 to 332.65, BUT with the June risks skewed towards an intermediate-term bullish shift above 370.46.

Intermediate-term Range Breakout Parameters: Range seen as 370.46 to 332.65.

  • Upside Risks: Above 370.46 sets a bull trend to aim for 385.03, the record high at 423.21 and 450.00.

Google, Alphabet (GOOG)

A very aggressive bear gap at the end of April at 1192.81 to 1266.29 (due to disappointing Q1 revenue numbers) through the bull trend line from December 2018 and then in May through various Q1 supports, to establish a bear trend.

Although the June rebound has somewhat eased the intermediate-term bear forces, a move above 1151.59 is required to neutralise this bear theme.

Intermediate-term Outlook – Downside Risks: Whilst below 1151.59 see a downside risk back to 1025.00.

  • Lower targets would be 1014.07 and 970.11.
  • What Changes This? Above 1151.59 shifts the intermediate-term outlook back to neutral; above 1192.81 is needed for an intermediate-term bull theme.
