Disney earnings: technical analysis

The share price of Disney has recently broken above the 200-day simple moving average (200MA) (blue line). This suggests that the longer-term trend is no longer down. The 20MA (red line) has also recently crossed above the 50MA (green line) suggesting that the short to medium term trend is now up.

The stochastic does however provide a conflicting signal as it trades in overbought territory.

Our preference is to look for long entry on the stock into a pullback from overbought territory, with a longer-term upside resistance target of 126.35. However, should a pullback instead take the share price below resistance and the 200MA at around 101.30, our upward trend bias assumptions would need to be reassessed.

In summary

  • Q1 2023 results are expected to be released on the 8th of February after US markets close
  • While revenue is likely to have increased against the prior year’s comparative period, earnings are expected to have declined
  • Consensus broker rating suggest the Walt Disney Co. to be a long term buy
  • Most IG clients with open positions expect the share price to rise in the near term
  • The price trend for Disney appears up although overbought at current levels

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter Trend Mode - Corrective Structure -Zigzag for wave (B) Position - Wave A of (B) Direction - Wave A is still in play Details -  As it appears the decline from 720’4 will most likely continue lower, we have adjusted the previous count. Price is now very likely in wave A of (B) against the 523’6 low. Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Since late May, wheat has declined over 14% from 720, indicating that the commodity has retraced approximately half of the impulse rally that occurred between March 11th and May 28th. In the medium term, the move from March 11th remains a positive correction of the long-term bearish trend that spanned from March 2022 to March 2024—a two-year trend.   Daily Chart Analysis: On the daily chart, wheat completed a bearish impulse wave from March 2022 at 523’6 in March 2024. Following this trend, a corrective phase was anticipated in the opposite direction. The impulse reaction that concluded wave (A) at the May 2024 peak is part of this larger bullish correction. Given that wave (A) is an impulse, we can expect at least a zigzag structure or possibly a double zigzag if the bullish correction extends over several months. Following the path of least resistance, a simple zigzag structure—wave (A)-(B)-(C)—is highly probable. Currently, the price is correcting wave (A) downwards in wave (B). Provided that the ongoing decline stays above 523’6, an extension higher is expected. However, wave (B) does not appear to be finished yet, as evident from the H4 chart.   H4 Chart Analysis: On the H4 chart, the price seems to be in wave A of (B), which is evolving into an impulse structure. We anticipate a typical zigzag structure for wave (B). The invalidation level at 523’6 should not be breached. If it is, the long-term bearish trend from March 2022 will likely resume, confirming that the bullish correction from March 2024 has concluded.   Summary: Wheat has seen a significant decline since late May, retracing half of its recent impulse rally. The medium-term trend from March 11th remains a positive correction within the context of a long-term bearish trend that lasted two years. On the daily chart, the completion of the bearish impulse wave in March 2024 was followed by a bullish correction, which is currently in wave (B) of a zigzag structure. The H4 chart suggests that wave A of (B) is forming an impulse structure, with expectations of a typical zigzag correction.   Traders should monitor the key level of 523’6. If this level holds, the bullish correction is likely to continue with a potential extension higher. However, a breach below 523’6 would invalidate this scenario, signaling a continuation of the long-term bearish trend.  Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
