Despite the positives, there are a few.

First, even if the 200-day moving average gets attention, the 50-week still matters. This measure has continued to serve as support so far. Its also holding uptrend support, which stretches all the way back to March 2021.

Third, while many stock markets continued to test new lows in March, April, andnow May, Pfizer has avoided breaking its February low thus far.

Lastly, its placing in a higherlow. While not monumental, it''s a key technical shift that shows bulls might be taking advantage of the game.

The downside from here is quite defined. We do not want a break of $47.10 to $47.90. This would put Pfizer''s stock below the previous three weeks of lows, as well as the 50-week moving average and uptrend support (blue line).

Then there''s a possibility that the doors down to the 2022 low are open. If below $45 and $40 is on deck.

The downside is less apparent. The stock is currently contained within the last weeks range and is trading below a few key moving averages.

Pfizer''s stock can climb upwards to $50.77 per week and reduce the 21-day, which is putting it above all of its daily moving averages.

Next, $55 to $56.50 might be in play. Above all, it opens the door back to the $60 to $62 area. After all, it starts with a clearing last week high.
