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.


Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 28.65, Viacom Inc. closed below it after spiking as high as 29.10 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 29.01 in the prior session, the market ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 29.10.


The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.


Even though both sentiments are bearish for the next trading day, the classical technical analysis metrics are only slightly bearish while our quantitative statistics show a bearish sentiment.
