Daily Candlestick Chart (KHC as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $1.12 (1.91%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.36. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Breaking below the key support level at 58.26 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.
Though the market is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 57.62 where further sell stops might get activated.
