SMAs overview

ABNB stock SMAs chart

Supports and resistances

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $215.49 (28.98% above)
  • The current support levels are:

  • S3: $161.90 (-3.09% below)

    When the price moves out of the band (above the upper line or below the lower line) it tells that the stock is maintaining a very strong trend and therefore can correct the trend to the average. For this case, the price is below the upper band, which should mean a possible short-term bounce off (at least) until it is back above the band
