Daily Candlestick Chart (SCHW as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $0.97 (1.92%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $0.88. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 50.36 and 51.56 which it has been in now for the last trading week.
Breaking through the key resistance level at 50.68 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 51.70.
While still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already. The share managed to break above the 50-day moving average at 51.12 today for the first time since September 4th.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 50.36 where further sell stops could get triggered. Further buying might move prices higher should the market test August's nearby high at 52.61.
