Daily Candlestick Chart (ALV.DE as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was €1.12 (0.62%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of €2.60. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 178.50 and 180.82 which it has been in now for the last three days.
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.
Allianz ran into sellers again today around 180.52 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 180.82 in the previous session and at 180.66 two days ago.
While the market is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 180.82 where further buy stops could get activated. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 178.50 where further sell stops could get triggered. Further buying might move prices higher should the market test June's nearby high at 183.98.
