Daily Candlestick Chart (SIE.DE as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was €1.12 (1.07%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of €1.81. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 105.10, Siemens closed below it after spiking as high as 105.16 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
Though the share is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Buying could accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 106.00 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 103.28 where further sell stops might get triggered.
