Tuesday's trading range has been $0.11 (4.31%), that's far below the last trading month's daily average range of $0.18.

Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 2.41 and 2.64 where it has been caught now for the whole last trading week.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 2.62 (R1), Pitney Bowes closed below it after spiking up to 2.64 earlier during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance going forward. When prices bounced off a significant resistance level the last time on June 25th, PBI lost -2.76% on the following trading day.

The share shows weakness in the short-term (in accordance with its long-term downtrend) with only the medium-term trend still being bullish.

Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 2.41 where further sell stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to June's low at 2.37, downside momentum could accelerate should the stock mark new lows for the month.
