Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Ryder System Inc. (R) as at Jan 11, 2019

Friday's trading range has been $1.84 (3.34%), that's slightly below the last trading month's daily average range of $1.97.

The longer-term, monthly volatility is currently slightly higher than usual for R.

One bullish candlestick pattern matches today's price action, the Bullish Spinning Top. The last time a Bullish Spinning Top showed up on December 31, 2018, R gained 1.37% on the following trading day.

Buyers managed to take out the key technical resistance level at 55.50 (now S1), which is likely to act as support going forward.

With another close above the upper Bollinger Band, prices are confirming their strong upward momentum in the short-term. A drop back into the Bollinger Band on the next trading day while could signal a potential change in momentum that might lead to a correction back down towards the center of the Bollinger Bands at 49.66.

Though 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 December's close-by high at 58.23.
