Daily chart for KO
Volatility

Thursday's trading range was $0.48 (1.14%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.65. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Support/Resistance

Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 42.50.

Trend

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.

Order Flow

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 42.47 where further buy stops could get triggered. As prices are trading close to May's high at 42.99, upside momentum might speed up should Coca Cola mark new highs for the month.

Conclusion

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