Thursday's trading range was $0.92 (2.92%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.37. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Though still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 32.45 where further buy stops could get triggered.
