Daily Candlestick Chart (RHT as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $2.35 (1.46%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $3.65. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
After trading as low as 159.62 during the day, Red Hat Inc. bounced off the key support level at 160.76. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.
Though the market is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.
