CCI finished Monday at 104.33 gaining $0.57 (0.55%) on low volume. Trading up to $0.59 lower after the open, the share managed to reverse during the session as bulls took control ending the day above its opening price. Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move beyond the prior day's trading range in a lackluster session. Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (CCI as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.35 (1.29%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $2.42. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way above the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 103.12 and 105.29 which it has been in now for the last three days.
After moving lower in the previous session, the market managed to close higher but below the prior day's open, forming a bullish Harami Candle.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 103.04. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 105.75. The stock ran into sellers again today around 105.06 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 105.01 in the previous session and at 105.29 two days ago. After spiking up to 105.06 during the day, CCI found resistance at the 200-day moving average at 104.47.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
With prices trading close to this year's low at 99.82, downside momentum might accelerate should the share break out to new lows for the year.
