Daily Candlestick Chart (CMA as at Apr 16, 2018):

During the whole day, prices traded within the previous day's range, unable to trade above the prior day's high or below the previous day's low forming an Inside Bar.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 94.84. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 96.66, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 97.20 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 95.35 in the prior session, the stock found buyers again around the same price level today at 95.38. After trading as low as 95.38 during the day, the share found support at the 20-day moving average at 96.07.
CMA shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish. The market managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 96.07 today for the first time since April 12th.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 95.35 where further sell stops could get activated. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test March's nearby low at 91.50.
