Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Mettler Toledo (MTD) as at Aug 10, 2018

Friday's trading range was $5.58 (0.98%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $10.62. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 573.80, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 576.20 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

The stock shows weakness in the short-term (in accordance with its long-term downtrend) with only the medium-term trend being bullish.

Trading close to June's low at 554.83 we could see further downside momentum if potential sell stops at the level get triggered.
