Wednesday's trading range has been €2.20 (1.49%), that's slightly below the last trading month's daily average range of €2.43.

The longer-term, monthly volatility is currently slightly higher than usual for LIN.DE.
Crossing above the upper Bollinger Band for the first time since February 5th, prices have shown unusually strong upward momentum in the short-term. This might either indicate a potential buying climax after which prices could head back down towards the mean of the Bollinger Bands at 141.80 or signal the beginning of a strong momentum breakout leading to even higher prices. The last time prices broke out above the upper Bollinger Band on February 5th, LIN.DE actually lost -1.34% on the following trading day.
Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
