Volatility

Monday's trading range was $0.43 (0.96%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $0.81. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 44.41 and 45.12 which it has been in now for the last three days.

Support/Resistance

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 44.31. After having been unable to move above 45.07 in the prior session, the stock ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 45.12.

Trend

The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Order Flow

Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 44.41 where further sell stops could get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's high at 45.88, upside momentum might speed up should AFLAC Inc be able to break out to new highs for the year.

Conclusion

While classical technical analysis indicates a neutral sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being bearish.
