MicroVision Daily Chart Analysis

  • MicroVision looks to have broken out of what technical traders may call a bullish flag pattern.
  • The stock is trading above both the 50-day moving average (green) as well as the 200-day moving average (blue), indicating sentiment in the stock has been bullish.
  • These moving averages may both hold as support levels in the future.

Key MicroVision Levels To Watch

  • The bullish flag pattern occurs after the stock sees a large gain and starts pulling back.
  • The stock typically will trade in a downward channel following the large gain. The line connecting the highs starts acting as a resistance level while the line connecting the lows will start to act as a support level.
  • In theory, the stock is supposed to cross above the line connecting the highs and see a large upward push shortly after.
