Daily Candlestick Chart (HAS as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $1.52 (1.56%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $1.29. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 95.96. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 97.38, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 97.53 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 above 97.54 in the prior session, the market ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 97.53.
While still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 97.54 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 95.96 where further sell stops might get triggered.
