Netflix Inc is currently in a consolidation pattern, signified by its price moving between TriggerPoint support level (Green Line) and TriggerPoint resistance (Red Line) – In other words, range-bound between $106.03 and $117.29 Technical indicators are currently showing us that prices are trending down, as signified by the stair stepping down of the point of control (blue line). As this security is trending lower, it may be a higher probability trade to sell on the TriggerPoint resistance levels (red lines) depending on the outcome of the earnings.
The Triggerpoint Research algorithms have targeted immediate downside on a risk of a disappointment (see report) of $90.75. Upside on a positive surprise described in the report has two specific levels: $114.50 and $117.50.
