Tuesday's trading range has been $2.38 (2.26%), that's below the last trading month's daily average range of $2.88.

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

Two candlestick patterns are matching today's price action, the White Candle which is known as bullish pattern and one bearish pattern, the Bearish Hikkake Pattern. The last time a Bearish Hikkake Pattern showed up on June 10th, AKAM lost -3.25% on the following trading day.

Buyers managed to take out the key technical resistance level at 106.46 (now S1), which is likely to act as support going forward.

Crossing above the upper Bollinger Band for the first time since June 1st, prices have shown unusually strong upward momentum in the short-term. This might either indicate a potential buying climax after which prices could head back down towards the mean of the Bollinger Bands at 102.08 or signal the beginning of a strong momentum breakout leading to even higher prices.

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 108.25, upside momentum might speed up should the share be able to break out to new highs for the year.
