Technical Analysis for AFL - AFLAC Incorporated

Grade Last Price % Change Price Change
grade A 44.97 -1.70% -0.78
AFL closed up 0.15 percent on Friday, June 15, 2018, on 1.48 times normal volume. It was able to find support at its 50 day moving average. The price action carved out a bullish hammer (or hammer-like) candlestick pattern. That may indicate an upside reversal. Look for price to trade above the high of the hammer for confirmation. Note that the stock is in overbought territory based on its Slow Stochastic indicator (14, 3, 3) -- sideways movement or a pullback should not be unexpected.
