Monday's trading range was $1.28 (1.78%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.86. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 72.95, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 73.11 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
