Two candlestick patterns are matching today's price action, the Last Engulfing Bottom Pattern which is known as bullish pattern and one bearish pattern, the Bearish Spinning Top.
Prices broke below the key technical support level at 55.27 (now R1), which is likely to act as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 55.73 in the prior session, the stock ran into sellers again around the same price level today, missing to move higher than 55.79.
Molson Coors shows weakness in the short-term (in accordance with its long-term downtrend) with only the medium-term trend still being bullish.
