Daily Candlestick Chart (DLR as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $1.90 (1.78%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $2.06. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.
Breaking below the key support level at 105.76 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After trading as low as 105.02 during the day, the market found support at the 20-day moving average at 105.39.
Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already. Digital Realty broke below the 100-day moving average at 105.58 today for the first time since May 8th.
Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 103.74 where further sell stops might get activated. As prices are trading close to May's low at 103.67, downside momentum could accelerate should the share mark new lows for the month.
