Daily Candlestick Chart (CCL.L as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was £56.00 (1.13%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of £73.70. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
After having been unable to move lower than 4912.00 in the previous session, the stock found buyers again around the same price level today at 4917.00.
Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
With prices trading close to this year's high at 5090.00, upside momentum might accelerate should the share be able to break out to new highs for the year.
