Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Illinois Tool Works Inc. (ITW) as at Sep 14, 2018

Friday's trading range was $1.83 (1.28%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.95. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Breaking through the key resistance level at 144.19 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward.

Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.

Trading close to July's high at 148.03 we could see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get activated.
