Friday's trading range was $0.26 (1.97%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.28. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 13.03 and 13.37 which it has been in now for the last trading week.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 13.39.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 13.37 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 13.03 where further sell stops might get triggered. Further selling could move prices lower should the market test July's close-by low at 12.91.
