Daily Candlestick Chart (TMUS as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $0.36 (0.64%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $1.59. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.
During the whole day, prices traded within the prior day's range, unable to trade above the previous day's high or below the prior day's low forming an Inside Bar.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 57.03.
Although the market is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 57.03 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 56.00 where further sell stops could get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 55.09, downside momentum might accelerate should T-Mobile US break out to new lows for the year.
