Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Royal Bank of Scotland PLC (RBS.L) as at Apr 16, 2018

Monday's trading range was £3.00 (1.13%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of £4.32. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 264.70, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 265.80 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

Although the stock 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.

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 267.50 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 259.00 where further sell stops could get activated.
