Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB) stock headed for near term correction?

Facebook reported a solid Q2 earnings report recently. The company crushed Wall Street estimates on most counts, which was followed by a rise to fresh all-time highs around $172 levels. However, the stock had moved lower in subsequent trading sessions and could be headed even lower in the next few trading sessions. The Facebook stock technical chart flashed a bearish MACD crossover in the most recent trading session, which saw its MACD drop below the signal line for the first time in nearly a month. The last time we saw a bearish MACD crossover on the Facebook chart (in June), the stock dropped by nearly $5 before continuing on a longer term uptrend.

Time to sell Citigroup (NYSE:C) stock.

The second MACD signal for today comes from the Citigroup stock technical chart. And, well it is the bears who are gaining control at this counter as well if the MACD indicator is something to go by. The Citigroup stock technical chart flashed a bearish signal, with the MACD making a bearish crossover with the signal line. In light of this crossover on the technical chart, a correction in Citigroup stock price over the next few trading sessions won't be a big surprise.

Buy NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) stock ahead of Q2 earnings

Well, today isn't all about the bears. The NVIDIA stock technical chart had something to cheer for the bulls, with encouraging signs ahead of the NVIDIA's upcoming Q2 earnings announcement. Shares of the Santa Clara, California based GPU maker are flirting with their all time highs at the $172 levels. NVIDIA stock price is up over 60% this year (2017), and we might still be far away from the peak, if the MACD indicator is to be believed. The NVIDIA stock technical chart flashed a bullish signal, which saw the MACD cut through the signal line from below forming a bullish MACD crossover. What this means is that NVIDIA stock will, more likely than not, continue its uptrend, provided we don't see any shockers in the earnings announcement later today.

I believe there will be a sell off after the earnings, no matter how good the results are. At this point there's a lot of speculative money in NVDA. Not to mention shorts know there are lot of newbies holding the stock as well which could easily trigger panic during the sell off. Short term I believe we are going lower. Long term looks good still for NVDA.

If "FB" sells off I believe if you are a true long term investor it would then present itself as a great entry point for new or additional money.
