Time Warner Inc. (TWX) Technical Analysis Report for May 17, 2018 | by Techniquant Editorial Team
Moving lower for the 2nd day in a row, TWX finished Thursday at 92.88 tanking $1.31 (-1.39%). This is the biggest single day loss in over three weeks. Today's closing price of 92.88 marks the lowest close since May 10th. The bears were in full control today, moving the market lower throughout the whole session. Closing below Wednesday's low at 93.65, Time Warner confirms its breakout through the prior session's low having traded $0.87 below it intraday. Ending with a weak close near the low of the day sets a bearish note for the next session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (TWX as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $1.59 (1.69%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $1.29. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 92.40. Breaking below the key support level at 93.23 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. The market was sold again around 94.37 after having seen highs at 94.52, 94.46 and 94.47 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level. After spiking up to 94.37 during the day, the share found resistance at the 100-day moving average at 94.35.
Though 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.
With prices trading close to this year's low at 90.72, downside momentum could speed up should TWX break out to new lows for the year.
