Daily Candlestick Chart (DFS as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $0.83 (1.08%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.95. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.
During the whole day, prices traded within the prior day's range, unable to trade above the previous day's high or below the prior day's low forming an Inside Bar.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 77.86, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 78.00 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 77.05 in the previous session, the share found buyers again around the same price level today at 77.17.
Although the stock is currently in a short-term down trend, this might just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.
Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 77.05 where further sell stops might get triggered.
