Daily Candlestick Chart (FSLR as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $0.82 (1.7%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $1.22. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
After trading as low as 47.92 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 48.00. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 47.59 where further sell stops might get activated.
