Daily Candlestick Chart (TSN as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.31 (1.86%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.56. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
After spiking up to 71.64 during the day, Tyson Foods found resistance at the 200-day moving average at 71.62.
Although the stock is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 69.81 where further sell stops might get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's low at 68.03, downside momentum could speed up should the market break out to new lows for the year. As prices are trading close to April's high at 72.13, upside momentum might accelerate should TSN mark new highs for the month.
