In a volatile session, prices traded above the prior day's high as well as below the previous day's low, forming a bearish Outside Bar.
Breaking below the key support level at 37.54 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 37.75 in the prior session, the stock ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 37.80.
While UDR Inc is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 37.87 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 36.99 where further sell stops could get activated. As prices are trading close to July's low at 36.82, downside momentum might speed up should UDR mark new lows for the month.
