Is $EBAY stock a buy?

In the current situation of eBay there is just one buy setup eligible:

ATH buy setup

One of the most recommended trading strategies is to buy on All-time Highs (ATH) breakouts. The good point of buying at ATHs is that price doesn't have upper resistances, and usually it scales fast. However, you must always be aware of a possible bulls trap that may trigger your buy order and then falls sharply. That's why a stop loss is always important. Price is now at 2.57% of all-time highs and it can breakout at any time, so if you want to trade this setup it's recommended to setup your order at $60.69. Set your stop-loss at $54.62

SMAs overview

EBAY stock SMAs chart

Supports and resistances

The current resistance levels are:

  • R1: $60.69 (2.57% above)
  • The current supports are:

  • S1: $58.70 (-0.79% below)
  • S2: $58.16 (-1.71% below)
  • S3: $53.34 (-9.85% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    When the price moves out of the band (above the upper line or below the lower line) it tells that the price is maintaining a very strong momentum and therefore can reverse the trend to the average. At this point, the price is over the upper band, and that should mean a short-term adjustment (at least) until it is below the band
