Moving higher for the 2nd day in a row, LIN.DE ended the week -1.65% lower at 179.00 after edging higher €0.15 (0.08%) today. Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move past the prior day's trading range in a lackluster session. Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (LIN.DE as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was €2.00 (1.12%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of €2.60. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 180.50. After having been unable to move above 179.90 in the previous session, the stock ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 180.00. After trading as low as 178.00 during the day, the share found support at the 200-day moving average at 179.00.
Linde shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish. The market managed to break above the 200-day moving average at 179.00 today for the first time since July 5th.
Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 176.75 where further sell stops could get activated. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test June's close-by low at 174.75.
