Baidu Inc (NASDAQ:BIDU) stock sees bearish MACD crossover.
Shares of Chinese search giant Baidu Inc (NASDAQ:BIDU) could be headed lower, if you go by the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). For the uninitiated, the MACD 'is a trend-following momentum indicator that shows the relationship between two moving averages of prices. The MACD is calculated by subtracting the 26-day exponential moving average (EMA) from the 12-day EMA. A nine-day EMA of the MACD, called the "signal line", is then plotted on top of the MACD, functioning as a trigger for buy and sell signals.' Typically when the MACD cuts the signal line from above, falling below it, the signal is bearish, indicating a potential decline. And the reverse is true when the MACD line cuts the signal line from below, rising above it.
In the case of Baidu, the MACD has made a bearish crossover with the signal line. As is visible from the chart, the MACD has fallen below the signal line, suggesting that the stock could correct from here. The stock had entered overbought territory, with a Relative Strength Index (RSI) reading of much more than 70, the commonly used threshold to determine overbought conditions. The stock price was also touching the upper Bollinger Band, which is another signal of overbought conditions. The next level of support for the stock is at its 20 day Simple Moving Average (SMA), at just over $213 a share. Do note that technical indicators are only signals, and not guarantees of a move in either direction.
