Daily chart for FBHS

Friday's trading range was $0.86 (1.57%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.26. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.


Prices are trading close to a key support level at 54.17. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 55.15, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 55.17 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.


The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term. Fortune Brands broke below the 50-day moving average at 55.91 today for the first time since July 23rd.

Order Flow

With prices trading close to this year's low at 52.63, downside momentum could speed up should FBHS break out to new lows for the year. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test July's close-by low at 52.81.


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