Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for CF Industries Holdings Inc. (CF) as at May 17, 2018

Thursday's trading range was $0.80 (1.97%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.08. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being above 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. After moving lower in the prior session, the stock managed to close higher but below the previous day's open, forming a bullish Harami Candle.

The share found buyers again today around 40.47 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 40.33 in the prior session and at 40.47 two days ago.

Although the market 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.

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 42.04 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 40.33 where further sell stops might get triggered.
