Daily Candlestick Chart (STJ.L as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was £13.00 (1.2%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of £16.41. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
While the stock 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 close-by swing high at 1088.00 where further buy stops might get triggered.
