Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Tenet Healthcare Corporation (THC) as at Aug 10, 2018

Friday's trading range was $1.20 (3.73%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.43. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way above the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 31.25 and 32.59 which it has been in now for the last three days.

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 31.25. The stock found buyers again today around 31.39 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 31.33 in the prior session and at 31.25 two days ago. After trading as low as 31.39 during the day, the share found support at the 100-day moving average at 31.93.

Though still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.

Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 31.25 where further sell stops might get triggered.
