Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Gilead Sciences Inc. (GILD) as at Sep 14, 2018

Friday's trading range was $1.32 (1.78%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.33. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Regardless of a strong opening Gilead Sciences closed below the previous day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle.

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 72.90. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 74.35, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 74.54 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

Although the market is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive. The stock broke below the 20-day moving average at 73.84 today for the first time since September 4th.

Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 72.90 where further sell stops could get triggered.
