Daily Candlestick Chart (ABC as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $1.43 (1.72%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $2.10. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
After trading as low as 81.65 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 81.97. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 81.48 where further sell stops might get activated.
