Daily Candlestick Chart (AHT.L as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was £58.00 (2.46%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of £51.70. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
After trading as low as 2350.00 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 2352.00. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
With prices trading close to this year's high at 2441.00, upside momentum might speed up should the share be able to break out to new highs for the year.
