Monday's trading range was €3.60 (1.6%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of €3.95. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Breaking below the key support level at 223.70 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.

Though still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already. The share broke below the 50-day moving average at 223.95 today for the first time since February 8th.

With prices trading close to this year's low at 213.30, downside momentum could speed up should the market break out to new lows for the year. As prices are trading close to April's low at 215.70, downside momentum might accelerate should Continental mark new lows for the month.
