Daily chart for PSA

Thursday's trading range was $2.30 (1.12%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $3.30. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being way above average.


Prices are trading close to a key support level at 202.20. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 204.75, Public Storage closed below it after spiking as high as 205.60 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After trading as low as 203.30 during the day, the stock found support at the 200-day moving average at 203.76.


Although PSA is currently in a short-term down trend, this might just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive. The share broke below the 20-day moving average at 203.97 today for the first time since April 12th.

Order Flow

Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 200.68 where further sell stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to May's low at 200.68, downside momentum could accelerate should the market mark new lows for the month.


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