Friday's trading range was $2.56 (1.27%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $6.39. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.
After having been unable to move above 202.45 in the prior session, the stock ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 203.00. After trading as low as 200.44 during the day, the share found support at the 20-day moving average at 201.07.
Though the market is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
