Daily Candlestick Chart (ALV.DE as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was €1.16 (0.63%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of €2.04. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
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.
After trading as low as 184.96 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 185.08. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 186.54.
Although still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 186.54 where further buy stops could get triggered.
