Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Illinois Tool Works Inc. (ITW) as at Aug 10, 2018

Friday's trading range was $2.67 (1.93%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $2.80. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Breaking below the key support level at 136.95 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.

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

With prices trading close to this year's low at 134.66, downside momentum might speed up should the share break out to new lows for the year.
