Daily Candlestick Chart (NBL as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $0.43 (1.34%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $0.97. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.
During the whole day, prices traded within the previous day's range, unable to trade above the prior day's high or below the previous day's low forming an Inside Bar.
After having been unable to move lower than 31.71 in the prior session, the market found buyers again around the same price level today at 31.77.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying might accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 32.53 where further buy stops could get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's high at 33.33, upside momentum might speed up should the stock be able to break out to new highs for the year.
