Monday's trading range was $0.38 (1.62%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $0.63. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
During the whole day, prices traded within the previous day's range, unable to trade above the prior day's high or below the previous day's low forming an Inside Bar. After moving lower in the prior session, the market managed to close higher but below the previous day's open, forming a bullish Harami Candle.
After trading as low as 23.29 during the day, Arconic Inc bounced off the key support level at 23.29. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.
While the stock 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 speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 23.88 where further buy stops could get activated.
