Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Newfield Exploration Co (NFX) as at May 17, 2018

Thursday's trading range was $0.59 (2.01%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.99. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.

After trading as low as 29.08 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 29.13. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.

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

Further buying could move prices higher should the market test April's close-by high at 30.39.
