Daily chart for KO
Volatility

Monday's trading range was $0.49 (1.1%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.66. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Support/Resistance

After trading as low as 44.40 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 44.61. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. After spiking up to 44.89 during the day, the stock found resistance at the 200-day moving average at 44.73.

Trend

While the market 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.

Conclusion

While classical technical analysis indicates a neutral sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being bullish.
