Monday's trading range was $0.47 (3.41%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.64. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.

Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 14.19. After having been unable to move lower than 13.51 in the prior session, the share found buyers again around the same price level today at 13.58.

Although 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 nearby swing low at 13.32 where further sell stops might get triggered.
