Thursday's trading range was $1.44 (1.99%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.73. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Breaking through the key resistance level at 73.00 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 74.36.

The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.

With prices trading close to this year's high at 75.02, upside momentum could accelerate should the stock be able to break out to new highs for the year. Further buying might move prices higher should the market test April's close-by high at 74.36.
