Alibaba stock (NYSE: BABA) is one fastest moving stocks. However, some investors are very concerned about skyrocketing stock prices is moving too fast. Their fears stem from the US China Trade deal which has been on and off again since October. More recently, it appears that China and the US have come to some kind of deal, which is more great news for Alibaba investors. Investment banks like RBC are making Alibaba stock a top pick for 2020. RBC’s Zack Schwartzman predicts Alibaba growing its revenue at a 27% and EBITDA at a 30%!
Investors should be aware that Alibaba stock was delisted by Nasdaq on October 2 and has yet to be approved quoted on OTC quoting by FINRA. Currently it is quoted on NYSE as American Depository Receipt (ADR). This could cause potential liquidation issues for investors.
Alibaba Group shares added more than 7.5% in December and are currently trading at a new 52-week high. The issuer’s quotes are supported by corporate news, including successful placement on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange at the end of November, as well as record sales results of $38.4 billion following a recent shopping event, Singles Day in China. Over the past week, Alibaba Group shares fell 1.40%. Over the same period, the S&P 500 index grew by 0.16%.
Stock futures are signalling a strong rally today as we start the new year. The S&P 500 posted the largest gains since 2013. There are not any corporate earnings coming out today. Traders are expecting the first day of 2020 to start strong rally.
Support and Resistance
The “bullish” sentiment still prevails for Alibaba stock. Shares of the company renewed local highs. At the moment, #BABA quotes are consolidating.

The signals of the indicators differ: the price fixed above MA (50) and MA (200); MACD began to decline. It is better to open the positions from the key levels.
