Boeing (NYSE: BA) stock price has made a smooth recovery in 2023 as the company’s era of turbulence end. The stock rose to a high of $222 in February, the highest point since January 31st. It has surged by ~82% from its lowest level in 2022 as it now enters its cruising altitude.
This report will provide a technical outlook of the stock since most of the company’s fundamentals are well-known. They include the return of the Boeing 737 Max, the solution of the Dreamliner planes, and the rising number of orders. Earlier this month, the company, together with Airbus, received hundreds of orders from Air India. It also received a giant order from United Airlines, as we wrote here. Also, Boeing’s defence business is expected to see robust orders a the war in Ukraine continues.
Therefore, there is no major need for repeating all these fundamentals. Instead, I will look at what technicals are saying about the company and the key levels to watch going forward.
Turning to the weekly chart, we see that the Boeing share price was in a strong bullish trend for years. At the time, it was seen as a leading blue-chip with an impenetrable moat. This trend ended in 2019 when the shares soared to a high of $435. It moved ahead and collapsed to a low of $86.43 during the pandemic.
The stock has formed two double-bottom patterns. The first one, which is shown in black, connects the lowest point in March 2020 and June 2022. Its neckline was at $278. The other smaller double-bottom happened on June 13 and October 3 2022, with its neckline being at $173.68. In price action analysis, these double-bottom patterns are usually a bullish sign.
Boeing stock price remained stuck at the 200-day moving average. Therefore, the shares will likely continue rising as buyers target the neckline of the larger neckline at $278. This price is about 34% from the lowest level. A break above this neckline will push it much higher.
