Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Lincoln National Corporation (LNC) as at Apr 16, 2018

Monday's trading range was $1.04 (1.49%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $1.97. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

After moving lower in the previous session, the stock managed to close higher but below the prior day's open, forming a bullish Harami Candle.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 70.13, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 70.52 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 70.51 in the previous session, the share ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 70.52.

The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.

As prices are trading close to April's high at 72.76, upside momentum might accelerate should LNC mark new highs for the month.
