Technical Analysis for AMED - Amedisys Inc

Grade Last Price % Change Price Change
grade B 126.535 -0.28% -0.36
AMED closed up 0.31 percent on Thursday, January 17, 2019, on 54 percent of normal volume. The stock exhibited some range contraction during this trading session as price made an NR7 -- narrowest range of the last seven sessions. The price action carved out a bearish shooting star candlestick pattern. That may indicate a downside reversal. Look for price to trade beneath the low of the shooting star 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.
