Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Direct Line Insurance Group PLC (DLG.L) as at Sep 14, 2018

Friday's trading range was £3.10 (0.96%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of £4.67. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 323.40, Direct Line closed below it after spiking as high as 323.60 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 327.30 where further buy stops could get triggered. 2,017's low at 316.30 is within reach and we might see further downside momentum should the market break out past.
