Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for SL Green Realty Corp (SLG) as at Jun 30, 2020

Tuesday's trading range has been $1.61 (3.23%), that's far below the last trading month's daily average range of $3.58. Weekly volatility is also lower, being way below the market's average weekly trading range. The longer-term, monthly volatility is currently lower than usual for SLG.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 50.31 (R1), the market closed below it after spiking up to 50.42 earlier during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels significance going forward. When prices bounced off a significant resistance level the last time on June 25th, SLG lost -6.59% on the following trading day. The share was sold again around 50.42 after having seen highs at 50.12, 49.94 and 50.36 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level.

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

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 46.50 where further sell stops might get triggered.
