After reaching an important support level, SVB Financial (SIVB - Free Report) could be a good stock pick from a technical perspective. SIVB surpassed resistance at the 20-day moving average, suggesting a short-term bullish trend.

The 20-day simple moving average is a popular investing tool. Traders like this SMA because it offers a look back at a stock's price over a shorter period and helps smooth out price fluctuations. The 20-day can also show more trend reversal signals than longer-term moving averages.

Like other SMAs, if a stock's price is moving above the 20-day, the trend is considered positive. When the price falls below the moving average, it can signal a downward trend.

Moving Average Chart for SIVB

Over the past four weeks, SIVB has gained 5.3%. The company is currently ranked a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold), another strong indication the stock could move even higher.
