Thursday's trading range was $2.53 (1.6%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $3.53. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 155.80 and 158.52 which it has been in now for the last three days.

Price Action

In a volatile session, prices traded above the prior day's high as well as below the previous day's low, forming a bearish Outside Bar. Despite a strong opening SBA Communications closed below the prior day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle.


After trading as low as 155.99 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 156.42. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. The stock ran into sellers again today around 158.52 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 158.07 in the previous session and at 158.18 two days ago.


While the market 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.

Order Flow

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 155.80 where further sell stops might get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 151.24, downside momentum could speed up should SBAC break out to new lows for the year.


Both sentiments, the classical technical analysis and our quantitative statistics are in perfect alignment today showing a neutral sentiment for the next trading day.
