Google Stock Update (GOOGL): Watching For A Top

Back in February I wrote a post that highlighted why Google stock (GOOGL) appeared to be near a top and/or forming a topping pattern. I highlighted a few price targets to watch along with some other price considerations.

Thus far, the overhead price levels have held. And Google stock appears to be in a “cautious” price area.

The chart below is a long-term monthly chart.  You can see the potential wave count and distinct possibility that a top is in. In my prior post, I showed how my initial wave 5 price target had been hit.

Currently, I am watching the purple uptrend line around 690-710 to determine if a top is in. A WEEKLY close below the purple line would be a key break to the downside, in my opinion.  On the flip side, any further strength to the upside by Google stock price may mean that wave 5 is extending – which obviously could happen.

That said, it’s clearly a time to remain conservative with this high flying tech stock.
