Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way above the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 31.93. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 33.02. The market found buyers again today around 32.02 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 32.13 in the prior session and at 32.09 two days ago.
The stock shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish.
Trading close to February's high at 33.24 we could see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get activated.
