Daily Candlestick Chart (DLR as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.68 (1.63%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $2.25. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 101.73. After trading as low as 102.03 during the day, Digital Realty found support at the 50-day moving average at 102.60.
Though the stock 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. DLR managed to break above the 50-day moving average at 102.60 today for the first time since April 4th.
Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 105.44 where further buy stops might get activated. Further buying could move prices higher should the market test March's nearby high at 106.61.
