Daily Candlestick Chart (CPB as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $0.79 (2.0%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.91. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
After trading as low as 38.87 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 39.06. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 39.79.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
