Daily chart for T
Volatility

Thursday's trading range was $0.51 (1.58%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.55. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Price Action

In spite of a strong opening the stock closed below the prior day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle.

Support/Resistance

Breaking below the key support level at 32.27 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 32.41 in the previous session, the share ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 32.41.

Trend

The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Order Flow

Buying could speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 32.48 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 31.81 where further sell stops might get triggered.

Conclusion

Even though both sentiments are bearish for the next trading day, the classical technical analysis metrics are only bearish while our quantitative statistics show a very bearish sentiment.
