DIS stuck within tight trading range
The Walt Disney Company (DIS) Technical Analysis Report for Apr 16, 2018 | by Techniquant Editorial Team
Moving lower for the 4th day in a row, DIS ended Monday at 100.24 edging lower $0.11 (-0.11%) on high volume. Today's closing price of 100.24 marks the lowest close since April 9th. Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move beyond the prior day's trading range in a lackluster session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (DIS as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.27 (1.26%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.92. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 99.68 and 101.52 which it has been in now for the last three days.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 101.18.
Though Walt Disney 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.
Buying could accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 101.52 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 99.68 where further sell stops might get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's low at 97.70, downside momentum could accelerate should the share break out to new lows for the year. As prices are trading close to April's high at 102.38, upside momentum might speed up should the market mark new highs for the month.
