Daily Candlestick Chart (IDXX as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $3.79 (1.56%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $5.77. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 245.25, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 245.83 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
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 252.49, upside momentum could speed up should the stock be able to break out to new highs for the year.
