askSlim Technical Briefing:

jnj stock price indicators analysis long term bearish_april year 2020

The weekly cycle analysis suggests that JNJ is in a declining phase. The next projected intermediate-term low is due between early July and early August. Weekly momentum is negative.

On the upside, there is an intermediate-term Fibonacci resistance zone from 131.83 – 137.18. On the downside, there is a Fibonacci support zone from 118.99 – 117.28 followed by another zone of support from 109.57 – 107.17. Our analysis suggests that for the bulls to regain control of the intermediate-term, we would likely need to see a weekly close above 144.80.
askSlim Sum of the Evidence:

JNJ is in a declining phase with negative momentum. Given these conditions, we would expect any rallies in the near-term to be limited to the weekly resistance zone beginning at 131.83. There is a likelihood that the stock tests the lower Fibonacci support zone beginning at 109.57 by early August.
