Daily chart for CAH
Volatility

Thursday's trading range was $1.04 (1.91%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.84. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 53.57 and 55.16 which it has been in now for the last three days.

Price Action

After moving higher in the previous session, the market closed lower but above the prior day's open today, forming a bearish Harami Candle.

Support/Resistance

After trading as low as 53.57 during the day, Cardinal Health bounced off the key support level at 53.70. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward.

Trend

While the stock 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.

Order Flow

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 55.75 where further buy stops might get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 50.79, downside momentum could speed up should the share break out to new lows 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 bullish.
