Price Churn

Note:  The historical stock examples given below are for EDUCATIONAL USE ONLY.  They ARE NOT to be used to make buy/sell decisions in today's market.  For more information, please read the HSR Terms of Use.


Price hits new highs, but closes little changed from the prior week on heavy volume.

Behavior Notes

  1. Price churn commonly features wide range and may retrace some of the prior week's range.
  2. "Little changed" can mean that price closes marginally higher/lower or is unchanged compared to the prior week's close.

What you need to know

Price Churn after an advance represents a laboring of price.

Churning suggests that sellers are feeding supply into the market because any price gains are met with stock (supply) coming back into the market.

It may help to compare a prior week's response to heavy volume when looking for churning weeks.
