Daily Candlestick Chart (CTRP as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.61 (3.67%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $1.43. Weekly volatility is also higher, being way above the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.
Breaking below the key support level at 43.02 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
2,017's low at 40.40 is within reach and we might see further downside momentum should the stock break out past.
