Tech analysis by Maksim Artyomov
"The stocks keep falling. The quotations are testing the upper border of the descending channel. I presume, the price will go on forming a downtrend. A bounce off the 200-days Moving Average is also a signal for a decline.
The goal of the decline is the nearest support level of $300. As long as the expenses for development will be growing, the quotations might head for the lower border of the descending channel".
Zoom Video Communications reported its performance in February-April 2021. Its revenue grew by 191% and net profit – by 741%. However, operational expenses also grew by 131%. Regardless of such optimistic results, Zoom shares have been falling for three sessions in a row.
