Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Citizens Financial Group Inc. (CFG) as at May 17, 2018

Thursday's trading range was $0.64 (1.51%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.91. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 42.08 and 43.12 which it has been in now for the last trading week.

Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 42.82. After spiking up to 42.72 during the day, the share found resistance at the 50-day moving average at 42.65.

While 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 speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 43.12 where further buy stops might get activated. Further buying could move prices higher should the market test April's nearby high at 43.62.
