HCA Holdings found buyers again today around 105.28 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 105.22 in the previous session and at 105.41 two days ago.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 105.22 where further sell stops might get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's high at 108.85, upside momentum could speed up should the stock be able to break out to new highs for the year.
