Daily Candlestick Chart (IBM as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $1.89 (1.29%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of $1.40. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 144.57.
Though the stock is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 144.37 where further sell stops could get activated.
