Thursday's trading range was $0.89 (3.76%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $0.83. 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 22.68 and 23.90 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. Regardless of a strong opening the market closed below the prior day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle. After moving higher in the previous session, the stock closed lower but above the prior day's open today, forming a bearish Harami Candle.

After trading as low as 22.80 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 22.92. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Discovery found buyers again today around 22.80 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 22.68 in the previous session and at 22.83 two days ago.

While DISCA is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory. The market broke below the 100-day moving average at 23.55 today for the first time since May 15th.

Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 22.68 where further sell stops could get activated.
