In spite of a strong opening the market closed below the prior day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle. After moving higher in the previous session, the share closed lower but above the prior day's open today, forming a bearish Harami Candle.


Prices are trading close to a key support level at 16.08. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 16.30, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 16.35 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. NWS was sold again around 16.35 after having seen highs at 16.40, 16.33 and 16.35 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level. After spiking up to 16.35 during the day, News Corp. found resistance at the 50-day moving average at 16.28.


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

Order Flow

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 16.40 where further buy stops could get activated.


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