Friday's trading range was $1.45 (3.12%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.77.

Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 44.79 and 47.43 which it has been in now for the last trading week.

Even with a strong opening the share closed below the previous day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 47.13, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 47.43 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 46.06 in the prior session, ESPR found buyers again around the same price level today at 45.98.

While still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 45.44 where further sell stops might get triggered.
