The Marvell Chart: Marvell has been trading in an uptrend since April 22, when the stock bounced up from the 200-day simple moving average. The most recent higher high was formed at the $78.44 mark on Tuesday and the most recent confirmed higher low was printed at the $66.97 mark on May 14.

  • After forming the most recent higher low, Marvell surged about 17% to print the most recent higher high before retracing slightly on Wednesday and Thursday, which settled the stock into a bull flag pattern. If the pattern is recognized and Marvell reacts positively to its earnings print, the measured move suggests the stock could rally toward about the $88 mark.
  • Bears want to see Marvell suffer a negative reaction to its earnings and fall lower on Friday. If that happens, Thursday’s high-of-day will serve as a lower high, which would negate the uptrend.

Marvell has resistance above at $80.09 and at $85.76 and support below at $75.53 and at $72.86.screenshot_699.png
