Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Alliance Data Systems Corporation (ADS) as at May 17, 2018

Thursday's trading range was $1.99 (0.95%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $3.86. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 211.25, Alliance Data closed below it after spiking as high as 211.61 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 211.57 in the prior session, the market ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 211.61.

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