Avery Dennison Corporation (AVY) Technical Analysis Report for Apr 16, 2018 | by Techniquant Editorial Team
AVY ended Monday at 105.98 gaining $1.18 (1.13%). Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move past the prior day's trading range in a lackluster session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (AVY as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.30 (1.23%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $2.25. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 104.27 and 107.19 which it has been in now for the last trading week.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 106.55.
While the share 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. The stock managed to break above the 200-day moving average at 105.00 today for the first time since April 10th.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 107.19 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 104.27 where further sell stops could get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 102.44, downside momentum might speed up should the market break out to new lows for the year.
