Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for PulteGroup Inc. (PHM) as at Apr 16, 2018

Monday's trading range was $0.69 (2.34%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.84. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 28.91 and 29.86 which it has been in now for the last three days.

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 29.08. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 29.79, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 29.86 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After trading as low as 29.17 during the day, the market found support at the 50-day moving average at 29.35.

While PHM is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory. The share managed to break above the 50-day moving average at 29.35 today for the first time since April 4th.

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 28.91 where further sell stops might get activated.
