Daily chart for HSY

Monday's trading range was $1.72 (1.8%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.89. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 95.10 and 97.96 which it has been in now for the last trading week.


Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 96.97, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 97.18 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 95.36 in the previous session, the stock found buyers again around the same price level today at 95.46.


The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
