NVDA chart by TradingViewIn our previous article on Nvidia, ‘Mizuho raises NVIDIA’s price target to $1,275: Can it reach there?’, published before the split when the stock was trading near $1,100 we had advised bullish investors to wait for a retracement or consolidation before buying the stock.We continue to hold that view, the stock has run up quite a lot in a short while and indicators across timeframes are in the overbought territory. Though it can climb higher from here on sheer bullish momentum, the risk of a quick retracement remains which is why it can be fatal for bulls to buy the stock at current levels.Traders who are bearish on the stock and are eyeing for a quick retracement trade must also exercise caution. Unless the stock starts trading below its 100-hour moving average or its recent swing low at $106.94, short positions must be avoided.Once the stock goes below $106.94, one can initiate a short position but must keep a wide stop loss at $126. If the bears get hold of the stock temporarily, they can take it down to below $80, where bearish traders can book profits and bullish investors can initiate a long position.More By This Author:JPY To Make A Comeback?
