Monday's trading range was €0.71 (0.84%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of €1.37. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below 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 83.95 during the day, BASF bounced off the key support level at 84.08. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 83.88 in the previous session, the share found buyers again around the same price level today at 83.95.

Though the market is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.

Buying could speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 84.91 where further buy stops might get activated. Further buying could move prices higher should the market test March's close-by high at 86.52.
