Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW.DE) Technical Analysis Report for Apr 16, 2018 | by Techniquant Editorial Team
BMW.DE ended Monday at 90.66 losing €0.67 (-0.73%) on low volume. The bears were in full control today, moving the market lower throughout the whole session. Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move beyond the prior 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 (BMW.DE as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was €1.14 (1.25%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of €1.61. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 89.81. After having been unable to move above 91.45 in the previous session, BMW ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 91.59.
The share shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 88.96 where further sell stops could get triggered. Trading close to February's high at 93.45 we might see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get activated.
