Gains Fade Amid Weak Q4 Earnings

Accenture Plc (NYSE: ACN) ACN stock price has exited the rising channel lows and is trying to retest the trendline of $310. However, the chart shows that during the breakdown, ACN stock managed to sustain the selling pressure at the 200-day EMA and made a doji candlestick, indicating that bulls somehow tried to hold the gains instead of a major correction in the intraday session. Furthermore, instead of follow-on selling, buying interest was noted, and ACN stock tried to revert the gains and is willing to reenter the channel.

Moreover, if ACN share price again surpasses the 20-day EMA, bullishness will continue, and ACN stock will skyrocket to $350. Conversely, if rejection comes from the trendline of $315, profit booking may lead to retesting the round mark of $300 in the coming sessions.

ACN stock is close to the 100-day EMA. Furthermore, per the options chain, at the strike price of $315, a massive open interest of 289 hundred shares on the put side showed that long positions were trapped during the panic selloff but still not squared off yet. 

At press time, ACN stock price is trading at $307.11 with an intraday gain of 2.11%, showing the pullback in yesterday’s session. Moreover, the trading volume increased by 1.23% to 3.67 Million, and the market cap is $204.071 Billion. However, analysts have maintained a neutral rating with a yearly target price of $338.52.

Accenture Plc engages in the provision of management consulting, technology, and outsourcing services. It operates through the following geographical segments: North America, Europe and Growth Markets. The company was founded in 1989 and is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland.
