- [By Kumar Abhishek]
NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA)stock has been in a bearish trend for quite some time now. After rallying for the past six months NVDA stock has given up some gains. After hitting a high of $120, NVIDIA stock is trending down. As can be seen from the chart, NVIDIA is currently testing its 100-day moving average at around $95 level. As the NVIDIA technical analysis charts show, the volume levels are highindicating that the downtrend in the stock is strong. MACD has fallen below the zero centerline providing more strength to the bearish trend. Another bearish signal is coming from the 20-day SMA and 50-day SMA. 20-day SMA is making a bearish crossover with the 50-day SMA. A crossover where a shorter moving average crosses the longer moving average from above is generally a strong sell signal.
