CSX stuck within tight trading range
CSX Corp. (CSX) Technical Analysis Report for Jul 13, 2018
CSX ended the week -0.45% lower at 64.71 after edging higher $0.03 (0.05%) today. Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move past 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.
Friday's trading range was $0.88 (1.36%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.08. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 64.35 and 65.69 which it has been in now for the last three days.
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.
After trading as low as 64.48 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 64.57. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. The stock found buyers again today around 64.48 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 64.46 in the prior session and at 64.35 two days ago. After spiking up to 65.36 during the day, CSX Corp. found resistance at the 20-day moving average at 64.75.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 64.35 where further sell stops could get activated. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test June's close-by low at 62.72.
While classical technical analysis indicates a neutral sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being bullish.
