SIRI ended the week 1.31% higher at 6.96 after losing $0.04 (-0.57%) today on low volume.

Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (SIRI as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $0.13 (1.87%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.14. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 6.99, Sirius XM closed below it after spiking as high as 7.03 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 7.05 in the previous session, the share ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 7.03. After spiking up to 7.03 during the day, the stock found resistance at the 20-day moving average at 7.02.
While still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.
Buying could speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 7.05 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 6.84 where further sell stops might get triggered. Further selling could move prices lower should the market test July's nearby low at 6.72.
