Support & Resistance
On the downside, the stock finds support just below today's level from accumulated volume at USD 10.38 and USD 10.33. On the upside the stock meets some resistance just above today's level from accumulated volume at USD 11.09.
There is natural risk involved when a stock is testing a support level, since if this is broken, the stock then may fall to the next support level. In this case, Eaton Vance Tax-Managed Diversified Equity Income Fund finds support just below today's level at 10.38. If this is broken, then the next support from accumulated volume will be at 10.33 and 10.30. The stock is about to test the resistance at USD 11.09. If this level is broken the stock may move faster and we often see a peak at the end of such a break, posing a good sales opportunity as in 90% of the cases you will get a reaction back to the level broken before new gains. A break should be followed by increasing volume else the break may be false and despite a break of the actual resistance level the stock falls back fairly soon.
This stock is usually traded at good volume, and with minor daily changes the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved USD 0.12 (1.10%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.01%.
Our recommended stoploss: USD 10.52 (-4.88%) ( criteria: risk and closeness to support from trendline.)
