Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Chesapeake Energy Corporation (CHK) as at Sep 14, 2018

Friday's trading range was $0.11 (2.74%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.15. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

While still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 4.14 where further buy stops could get triggered.
