CHD ended the week -2.5% lower at 55.74 after gaining $0.17 (0.31%) today on low volume.

Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (CHD as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $0.72 (1.29%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.98. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 56.25, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 56.25 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 55.27 where further sell stops might get triggered.
