Published: September 3, 2021 at 12:20 PM EDT

On September 3, 2021, Discovery Communications Inc stock (DISCA) achieved a SELL signal on 4 of our proprietary algorithms indicating near-term downward movement for DISCA. Based on historically similar occurrences, the likelihood of this near-term movement is very high. Although this analysis may be technical, it clearly lays out targets for pending price action for DISCA. The chart of all potential movement is at the bottom of this article.

Multi-Time Frame Algorithm

This algorithm determines when price direction reverses at the same time on the Daily and 3 Hour chart. There are two buy and sell points for this algorithm. An aggressive signal occurs when price direction changes on both charts at the same time. A conservative signal occurs after the second bar confirms price direction has changed. Aggressive signals can happen without conservative signals. Conservative signals only occur when an aggressive signal also occurs at the same time. The signals appear on other time frame charts in the same position a cross-over occurs on the 3 Hour and Daily charts.

Multi-Time Frame Aggressive SELL - DISCA 2 Hour Chart Accuracy

This algorithm accurately identifies SELL points for DISCA on 2 hour charts 96.552% of the time it signals. A successful signal means the equity price moves down at least 0.5% over the next 40 2 Hour bars. When the algorithm properly performs, success is seen at least 1 trading bars after the signal closing price with a median max gain occurring around 18 trading bars after the signal bar. Successful signals see average reversals of 4.71% from the signal bar closing price and median reversals of 3.548%. The equity reverses greater than two percent 79.31% of the time, greater than five percent 27.586% of the time, and moves beyond ten percent 6.897% of occurrences. The signal does not necessarily mean an immediate price reversal will occur. Price reversal is delayed 96.552% of the time. In these instances, the reversals do not obey the signal and begin sizable downward movement for an additional 1 to 12 bars after the triggering signal occurs. This delay can see the equity rise 0.307% to 2.063% beyond the signal closing price of 28.38.

Analysis Based on This Section

Based on the signal closing price of 28.38, the target price is between 26.7 and 27.73 over the next 8 to 32 bars after the signal. However, the equity may first rise toward a price in the range of 28.47 to 28.97 over the first 1 to 12 trading bars.

Multi-Time Frame Conservative SELL - DISCA 2 Hour Chart Accuracy

This algorithm accurately identifies SELL points for DISCA on 2 hour charts 98.824% of the time it signals. A successful signal means the equity price moves down at least 0.5% over the next 40 2 Hour bars. When the algorithm properly performs, success is seen at least 1 trading bars after the signal closing price with a median max gain occurring around 21 trading bars after the signal bar. Successful signals see average reversals of 5.754% from the signal bar closing price and median reversals of 4.173%. The equity reverses greater than two percent 81.176% of the time, greater than five percent 36.471% of the time, and moves beyond ten percent 10.588% of occurrences. The signal does not necessarily mean an immediate price reversal will occur. Price reversal is delayed 96.471% of the time. In these instances, the reversals do not obey the signal and begin sizable downward movement for an additional 1 to 12 bars after the triggering signal occurs. This delay can see the equity rise 0.44% to 2.351% beyond the signal closing price of 28.38.

Analysis Based on This Section

Based on the signal closing price of 28.38, the target price is between 26.42 and 27.72 over the next 8 to 34 bars after the signal. However, the equity may first rise toward a price in the range of 28.5 to 29.05 over the first 1 to 12 trading bars.

Precise Signal

This algorithm combines the occurrence of Chris Moody's SlingShot indicator with my Multi-Time Frame Algorithm above. The frequency of both indicators occurring on their own is somewhat infrequent, however, simultaneous occurrences is quite rare.

Precise Signal SELL - DISCA 2 Hour Chart Accuracy

This algorithm accurately identifies SELL points for DISCA on 2 hour charts 100.0% of the time it signals. A successful signal means the equity price moves down at least 0.5% over the next 40 2 Hour bars. When the algorithm properly performs, success is seen at least 1 trading bars after the signal closing price with a median max gain occurring around 20 trading bars after the signal bar. Successful signals see average reversals of 6.654% from the signal bar closing price and median reversals of 4.298%. The equity reverses greater than two percent 83.333% of the time, greater than five percent 33.333% of the time, and moves beyond ten percent 16.667% of occurrences. The signal does not necessarily mean an immediate price reversal will occur. Price reversal is delayed 100.0% of the time. In these instances, the reversals do not obey the signal and begin sizable downward movement for an additional 2 to 8 bars after the triggering signal occurs. This delay can see the equity rise 0.546% to 1.651% beyond the signal closing price of 28.38.

Analysis Based on This Section

Based on the signal closing price of 28.38, the target price is between 26.6 and 27.26 over the next 12 to 28 bars after the signal. However, the equity may first rise toward a price in the range of 28.53 to 28.85 over the first 2 to 8 trading bars.

Moving Average Convergence Divergence Extrema

This algorithm follows the common moving average convergence divergence (MACD). It signals a BUY when the largest negative divergences begin to reduce. It likewise signals a SELL when the largest positive divergences begin to reduce as well. There are additional factors required for an actual signal to remove false signals.

Summarization of Data

Based on all of the historical datapoints, this analysis has settled on the most likely courses of movement. The red boxes in the image below indicate the likely location of a rise if the signal is not immediately accurate. The green boxes likely hold the extent of signal accuracy. The larger boxes contain all movements aligned with historical data. The smaller box is comprised of the likely half of the median historical data. In this instance, half of the historical data shows the stock may first move up between 28.515 and 29.00. This is the small red box. Likewise, half of the historical target end points finish in the smaller green box. In this instance, the target bottom is likely between 26.51 and 27.725.
