Daily Candlestick Chart (CPG.L as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was £50.00 (3.17%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of £26.02. Weekly volatility is also higher, being above the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.
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.
Breaking through the key resistance level at 1598.00 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 1626.50.
While the market is currently in a short-term down trend, this might just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive. The share managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 1599.08 today for the first time since May 14th.
Buying could speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 1629.00 where further buy stops might get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's high at 1635.50, upside momentum could accelerate should the stock be able to break out to new highs for the year.
