BMRN closes within prior day's range after lackluster session
BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. (BMRN) Technical Analysis Report for Apr 16, 2018 | by Techniquant Editorial Team
Moving lower for the 2nd day in a row, BMRN finished Monday at 82.69 losing $0.90 (-1.08%) on low volume. The bears were in full control today, moving the market lower throughout the whole session. Closing within the prior day's range, prices failed to decisively move beyond the previous day's trading range in a lackluster session. Ending with a weak close near the low of the day sets a bearish note for the next session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (BMRN as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $2.01 (2.38%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $2.72. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
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.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 81.20. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 84.70. BioMarin Pharmaceutical ran into sellers again today around 84.31 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 84.59 in the previous session and at 84.31 two days ago. After trading as low as 82.30 during the day, the share found support at the 50-day moving average at 82.40.
Though the market 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.
Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 84.59 where further buy stops could get activated. Further buying might move prices higher should the market test March's close-by high at 86.74.
