Daily chart for AN
Volatility

Thursday's trading range was $1.51 (3.22%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $1.40. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Support/Resistance

Breaking through the key resistance level at 47.11 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 48.30.

Trend

While AutoNation Inc 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. The stock managed to break above the 50-day moving average at 47.33 today for the first time since January 2nd.

Order Flow

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 48.30 where further buy stops might get triggered. Further buying could move prices higher should the market test April's nearby high at 48.39.

Conclusion

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