Thursday's trading range was £32.50 (1.85%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of £35.80. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way above average.
In a volatile session, prices traded above the previous day's high as well as below the prior day's low, forming a bearish Outside Bar.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 1768.00. After having been unable to move lower than 1729.50 in the previous session, easyJet found buyers again around the same price level today at 1726.50.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 1768.00 where further buy stops could get triggered.
