In the past few days, Sony (TYO: 6758) followed a bullish path from the ¥12,500 support. It climbed above ¥12,750 and ¥13,000 to move into a positive zone.

Recently, the company published its earnings report for Q2 FY2023. Sales increased 8%, with significant increases in G&NS, Pictures, and Music segments sales. However, the company reported significant decreases in the financial Services, I&SS, and ET&S segments operating income.

Looking at the 4-hour chart of Sony stock, there was a decent increase above the ¥13,000 level. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near ¥12,975.

However, the bears seem to be active near the ¥13,150 level. The next key resistance is near the ¥13,220 level. A clear move above the ¥13,220 level might send the price toward the ¥13,450 level. A close above the ¥13,450 level could set the pace for a larger increase. In the stated case, there could be a move toward the ¥14,000 level.

If not, Sony stock price might correct lower below the trend line support. The next major support is near the ¥12,850 level, below which the price could drop toward ¥12,500. Any more losses might send the price toward the ¥12,050 level.
