Daily Candlestick Chart (BT.A.L as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was £8.70 (4.2%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of £4.07. Weekly volatility is also higher, being above the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 214.80, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 215.20 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
Though the stock 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.
