Daily Candlestick Chart (CDNS as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $0.48 (1.06%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.78. 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 previous day's range, unable to trade above the prior day's high or below the previous day's low forming an Inside Bar.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 45.38, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 45.52 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 44.97 in the prior session, the stock found buyers again around the same price level today at 45.04.
Although the market is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.
Buying might accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 45.58 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 44.86 where further sell stops could get activated.
