The selling that has hit the overall market in the last few days has moved some stocks and ETFs below their 50-day moving averages. Devon Energy (NYSE: DVN) has held pretty well considering how much ground the S&P has lost and the stock is hovering right around its 50-day moving average.
Devon has trended lower over the last few weeks and that brought the stock down to the moving average. It also brought the stock down to the lower rail of an upwardly-sloped trend channel and it caused the daily stochastic readings to move in to oversold territory.
The lower rail and the 50-day moving average seem to be acting as support at this time and now the stochastic readings have made a bullish crossover. The last time the stock was set up like this was on March 8 and the stock rallied by over 22% in the next three weeks.
In addition to the support and stochastics crossover, the Tickeron AI Trend Prediction tool generated a bullish signal for Devon on May 6. The signal calls for a gain of at least 4% over the next month and it showed a confidence level of 90%. Previous predictions on Devon have been successful 76% of the time.
