Daily Candlestick Chart (RCL as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $4.74 (4.24%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of $2.45. Weekly volatility is also higher, being way above the markets average with the monthly volatility being way above average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 113.92, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 115.55 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
While 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. The share managed to break above the 50-day moving average at 109.73 today for the first time since February 12th.
