Daily Candlestick Chart (STRATUSD as at Sep 15, 2018):
Saturday's trading range was $0.09 (6.25%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.14. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 1.34 and 1.48 which it has been in now for the last three days.
After having been unable to move above 1.47 in the previous session, STRAT/USD ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 1.48.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying could speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 1.51 where further buy stops might get activated. Further selling could move prices lower should the market test August's close-by low at 1.14.
