Marvell Technology Stock Forecast: MRVL hits new high range
LMRV inventory has already confirmed a new high range on the 4-hour chart. Below you can see that it has already broken above the recent resistance at $59. Now headed towards $60, the next target is $63, the recent high in the range.
There is a large area around $63 which can make this difficult. A supply zone ranges from $61.75 to $65.10 which dated back to early April. Only if Marvell stock can overcome this hurdle if it has the opportunity to make a longer-term run to reach the high of $76.52 from March 22. The good news for bulls is that the 9-day moving average has moved above the 20-day moving average. This is the first signal that an uptrend might be forming. Until then, support is at $52.
