HBI finds buyers at key support level

HBI ended the week 0.51% higher at 17.69 after gaining $0.12 (0.68%) today on low volume. Trading up to $0.15 lower after the open, Hanesbrands Inc managed to reverse during the session as bulls took control ending the day above its opening price.

Ending with a strong close near the high of the day sets a bullish note for the next session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (HBI as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $0.30 (1.71%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.40. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.
After moving lower in the prior session, the market managed to close higher but below the previous day's open, forming a bullish Harami Candle.
After trading as low as 17.43 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 17.44. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.
Though the stock is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 17.97 where further buy stops could get triggered. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test August's close-by low at 17.33.
