Tuesday's trading range has been $2.56 (4.43%), that's below the last trading month's daily average range of $3.85.

The longer-term, monthly volatility is currently slightly lower than usual for LABU.

During the whole day, prices traded within the prior day's range, unable to trade above the previous day's high or below the prior day's low forming an Inside Bar. Additionally, two candlestick patterns are matching today's price action, the Bearish Short Candle and the Black Candle which are both known as bearish patterns. The last time a Bearish Short Candle showed up on March 19th, LABU lost -2.89% on the following trading day.

Prices are trading close to the key technical support level at 54.42 (S1).

Although the market is currently in a short-term downtrend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bullish.

Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 54.42 where further sell stops could get triggered. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test March's close-by low at 50.49.
