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 past 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.

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.
The market found buyers again today around 267.84 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 266.74 in the previous session and at 266.86 two days ago.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 266.74 where further sell stops could get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's low at 250.10, downside momentum might speed up should the share break out to new lows for the year. As prices are trading close to May's high at 281.33, upside momentum could accelerate should Charter Communications mark new highs for the month. As prices are trading close to May's low at 264.75, downside momentum might speed up should the stock mark new lows for the month.
