Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (DVA as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.10 (1.74%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.37. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 62.32 and 63.84 which it has been in now for the last trading week.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 63.43. DaVita Inc. was sold again around 63.42 after having seen highs at 63.43, 63.41 and 63.38 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level.
Although still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.
Buying could speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 63.43 where further buy stops might get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 61.72, downside momentum could accelerate should the share break out to new lows for the year.
