Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Marathon Oil Corporation (MRO) as at Aug 10, 2018

Friday's trading range was $0.47 (2.34%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.62. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 19.96 and 20.61 which it has been in now for the last three days.

Despite a weak opening the market managed to close above the previous day's open and close, forming a bullish Engulfing Candle.

Breaking through the key resistance level at 20.25 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. The share found buyers again today around 19.98 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 19.96 in the prior session and at 19.96 two days ago.

Although still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.

Further selling could move prices lower should the market test July's close-by low at 19.41.
