Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (MAA as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.33 (1.45%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.59. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 90.85. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 92.15, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 92.34 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
While still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
Trading close to February's high at 94.05 we might see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get activated.
