Ending with a weak close near the low of the day sets a bearish note for the next session.

Daily chart for AAL
Volatility

Thursday's trading range was $1.02 (2.32%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.39. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.

Price Action

During the whole day, prices traded within the prior day's range, unable to trade above the previous day's high or below the prior day's low forming an Inside Bar. After moving higher in the previous session, American Airlines closed lower but above the prior day's open today, forming a bearish Harami Candle.

Support/Resistance

Breaking below the key support level at 43.81 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.

Trend

While the share is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.

Order Flow

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 44.91 where further buy stops might get triggered.

Conclusion

Even though both sentiments are bearish for the next trading day, the classical technical analysis metrics are only slightly bearish while our quantitative statistics show a bearish sentiment.
