Daily Candlestick Chart (JNJ as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $1.37 (1.04%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.55. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Breaking below the key support level at 130.90 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. The share ran into sellers again today around 131.63 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 131.72 in the prior session and at 131.80 two days ago.
The stock shows weakness in the short-term (in accordance with its long-term downtrend) with only the medium-term trend being bullish.
