Meta Platforms (META.US) stock fell sharply on Tuesday and is currently testing major support at $116.25, which coincides with the upward trendline, 50 SMA (green line) and 23.6% Fibonacci retracement of the last upward wave. Should break lower occur, the remaining retracements may be considered as support level. On the other hand, if buyers manage to halt declines here, then another upward impulse towards recent high at $124.50 may be launched. Source: xStation5
