Why Meta Platforms Could Be Due For A Breakout Soon

Meta Platforms Inc. FB shares are trading higher Monday along with other mega-cap technology and internet stocks amid signs of strong demand for its Oculus virtual reality headset during the holiday season, Bloomberg reports.

Meta was up 3.31% at $346.35 Monday afternoon at publication.

Meta Daily Chart Analysis

  • Shares are trading in what traders call an ascending triangle pattern. The stock is nearing the end of the pattern and could see a strong bullish push if able to break above the $380 resistance level.
  • The stock trades above both the 50-day moving average (green) and the 200-day moving average (blue). This indicates bullish sentiment and each of these moving averages may hold as an area of support in the future.
  • The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has been slowly climbing for the past couple of months and now sits at 59 on the indicator. This shows an increase in the number of buyers in the stock and the overall selling pressure is being outweighed by the overall buying pressure.
