Daily Candlestick Chart (SAP.DE as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was €1.54 (1.5%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of €1.65. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.
After trading as low as 101.84 during the day, the market bounced off the key support level at 102.26. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
With prices trading close to this year's high at 105.28, upside momentum could speed up should the stock be able to break out to new highs for the year.
