Daily Candlestick Chart (CCL as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $1.01 (1.54%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.17. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Despite a strong opening the stock closed below the prior day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle.
Breaking below the key support level at 65.15 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.
While the share 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. Carnival Corp. broke below the 50-day moving average at 65.07 today for the first time since February 27th.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 66.00 where further buy stops could get triggered.
