Moving higher for the 2nd day in a row, BMW.DE ended the week -0.72% lower at 79.62 after gaining €0.25 (0.31%) today on low volume. Closing within the prior day's range, prices failed to decisively move past the previous day's trading range in a lackluster session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (BMW.DE as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was €0.75 (0.94%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of €1.55. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly 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.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 79.07. After having been unable to move lower than 79.10 in the previous session, the market found buyers again around the same price level today at 79.31.
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 80.73 where further buy stops could get activated. Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 78.24 where further sell stops could get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's low at 76.50, downside momentum might speed up should the share break out to new lows for the year.
