Wednesday's trading range has been $1.03 (3.13%), that's slightly below the last trading month's daily average range of $1.09.

The longer-term, monthly volatility is currently slightly lower than usual for LPX.

One bearish candlestick pattern matches today's price action, the Black Candle.

Prices broke below the key technical support level at 32.30 (now R1), which is likely to act as resistance going forward. The last time this happened on September 3rd, LPX lost -0.66% on the following trading day.

While Louisiana-Pacific is currently in a short-term downtrend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bullish.

Further selling might move prices lower should the market test August's close-by low at 30.12.
