Daily Candlestick Chart (DWDP as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $1.09 (1.59%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.21. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 67.53. Breaking below the key support level at 68.65 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.
Although DowDuPont 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 67.53 where further sell stops might get triggered.
