On June 10, 2022, Western Digital Corporation stock (WDC) achieved a BUY signal on 6 of our proprietary algorithms indicating near-term upward movement for WDC. 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 WDC. The chart of all potential movement is at the bottom of this article.

Algorithm Version 1

This algorithm determines overbought and oversold conditions based on four criteria occurring at exactly the same time. Each condition is rare to occur by themselves, the frequency of them all occurring at the same time is quite rare. The SAG Gauge discussed below is built into this algorithm and it will occur at the same time this algorithm triggers a BUY or SELL signal.

Algorithm Version 1 BUY - WDC Hourly Chart Accuracy

This algorithm accurately identifies BUY points for WDC on hourly charts 95.652% of the time it signals. A successful signal means the equity price moves up at least 0.4% over the next 50 Hourly 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 24 trading bars after the signal bar. Successful signals see average reversals of 5.347% from the signal bar closing price and median reversals of 4.569%. The equity reverses greater than two percent 73.913% of the time, greater than five percent 47.826% of the time, and moves beyond ten percent 17.391% of occurrences. The signal does not necessarily mean an immediate price reversal will occur. Price reversal is delayed 86.957% of the time. In these instances, the reversals do not obey the signal and begin sizable upward movement for an additional 1 to 7 bars after the triggering signal occurs. This delay can see the equity decline 0.531% to 2.929% beyond the signal closing price of 54.66.

Analysis Based on This Section

Based on the signal closing price of 54.66, the target price is between 56.0 and 59.26 over the next 10 to 48 bars after the signal. However, the equity may first decline toward a price in the range of 53.06 to 54.37 over the first 1 to 7 trading bars.

Algorithm Version 2

This algorithm determines overbought and oversold conditions similar to Version 1. This algorithm contains the same elements as Version 1 plus one more condition. This will signal at the same time as Version 1 and the SAG Gauge. All conditions are rare to occur by themselves, the frequency of them all occurring at the same time is even more rare than Version 1.

Algorithm Version 2 BUY - WDC Hourly Chart Accuracy

This algorithm accurately identifies BUY points for WDC on hourly charts 92.308% of the time it signals. A successful signal means the equity price moves up at least 0.4% over the next 50 Hourly 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 34 trading bars after the signal bar. Successful signals see average reversals of 5.053% from the signal bar closing price and median reversals of 5.603%. The equity reverses greater than two percent 61.538% of the time, greater than five percent 53.846% of the time, and moves beyond ten percent 15.385% of occurrences. The signal does not necessarily mean an immediate price reversal will occur. Price reversal is delayed 84.615% of the time. In these instances, the reversals do not obey the signal and begin sizable upward movement for an additional 1 to 6 bars after the triggering signal occurs. This delay can see the equity decline 0.759% to 2.299% beyond the signal closing price of 54.66.

Analysis Based on This Section

Based on the signal closing price of 54.66, the target price is between 55.48 and 58.74 over the next 10 to 49 bars after the signal. However, the equity may first decline toward a price in the range of 53.4 to 54.25 over the first 1 to 6 trading bars.

Algorithm Version 3

This algorithm determines overbought and oversold conditions similar to Version 2. This algorithm contains the same elements as Version 1 plus an additional condition different from Version 2. This will signal at the same time as Version 1 and the SAG Gauge. All conditions are rare to occur by themselves, the frequency of them all occurring at the same time is even more infrequent than Version 1.

Algorithm Version 3 BUY - WDC Hourly Chart Accuracy

This algorithm accurately identifies BUY points for WDC on hourly charts 89.474% of the time it signals. A successful signal means the equity price moves up at least 0.4% over the next 50 Hourly 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 4.881% from the signal bar closing price and median reversals of 3.792%. The equity reverses greater than two percent 63.158% of the time, greater than five percent 42.105% of the time, and moves beyond ten percent 10.526% of occurrences. The signal does not necessarily mean an immediate price reversal will occur. Price reversal is delayed 78.947% of the time. In these instances, the reversals do not obey the signal and begin sizable upward movement for an additional 1 to 6 bars after the triggering signal occurs. This delay can see the equity decline 0.759% to 2.1% beyond the signal closing price of 54.66.

Analysis Based on This Section

Based on the signal closing price of 54.66, the target price is between 55.57 and 59.2 over the next 10 to 46 bars after the signal. However, the equity may first decline toward a price in the range of 53.51 to 54.25 over the first 1 to 6 trading bars.

SAG Gauge

This algorithm determines overbought and oversold conditions based on separate conditions all occurring at the same time. There are two buy and sell points for this algorithm. An aggressive signal occurs after a top or bottom is confirmed when technically reading the equity's chart. A conservative signal occurs after a 2-bar confirmation takes place. Aggressive signals can happen without conservative signals. Conservative signals only occur when an aggressive signal also occurs at the same time.

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 decline 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 half the median historical data. Movement here is possible but not guaranteed. In this instance, half of the historical data shows the stock may first move down between 53.325 and 54.36. 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 top is likely between 55.91 and 59.27.
