Daily Candlestick Chart (DFS as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $1.40 (1.81%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.43. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way above average.
After trading as low as 76.66 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 77.01. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Trading close to March's high at 79.34 we might see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get activated.
