Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Universal Health Services Inc. (UHS) as at Sep 14, 2018

Friday's trading range was $1.36 (1.08%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.68. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 126.81, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 127.12 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

Although Universal Health is currently in a short-term down trend, this might just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.
