Daily Candlestick Chart (CNX as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $0.45 (2.85%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.50. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 15.49 and 15.94 which it has been in now for the last three days.
In a volatile session, prices traded above the prior day's high as well as below the previous day's low, forming a bullish Outside Bar.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 16.04. The market was bought again around 15.49 after having seen lows at 15.53, 15.53 and 15.51 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 15.97 where further buy stops could get triggered.
