Daily chart for EBAY
Volatility

Thursday's trading range was $0.61 (1.6%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.79. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Support/Resistance

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 38.82, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 38.84 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After spiking up to 38.84 during the day, eBay Inc. found resistance at the 200-day moving average at 38.68.

Trend

The market shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish.

Order Flow

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 37.69 where further sell stops might get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 36.81, downside momentum could speed up should the share break out to new lows for the year.

Conclusion

While classical technical analysis indicates a neutral sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being bearish.
