Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 105.14 and 107.80 which it has been in now for the last three days.
In a volatile session, prices traded above the previous day's high as well as below the prior day's low, forming a bearish Outside Bar.
After trading as low as 105.14 during the day, the market bounced off the key support level at 106.27. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. After having been unable to move above 107.56 in the previous session, JPMorgan ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 107.80. After trading as low as 105.14 during the day, the share found support at the 20-day moving average at 105.82.
While 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.
