When Investors Should Look at Monthly Price Charts 

alibaba baba stock price performance chart

I have used monthly charts to determine support and resistance levels.

Moreover, this timeframe is often the best indicator for either the end of a countermove or the start of a bigger megatrend.

The 23-month moving average (blue) and the 80-month moving average (green) are my go-to’s.

One is a shorter 2-year business cycle while the other is about a 6–7-year business cycle.

Here are a bunch of monthly charts that have my attention.

Often, a picture says 1000 words.

Alibaba (BABA)-the end of the correction or the start of a much bigger move? BABA has traded below the 23-month moving average since 2021.

Natural Gas-sure get bullish-but the road back to the monthly MAs is long and perilous for now.

Semiconductors-Sure we will see corrections. But the trend is quite clear and will not give us any pause until it breaks under 160.

The ETF for sugar. It gave us a great signal in 202. Now, with May sitting around the 23-month MA, is the move over? 

How clear is this? Tesla is below the 23-month MA but above the 200-month MA. 

What about Granny Retail XRT?

Above the 23-month so in expansion. But also having an inside month to May. 

Best we can say from the chart- Granny looks constructive and we err to bullish. But there is more to prove.
