UPS ended the week -2.11% lower at 120.39 after gaining $0.69 (0.58%) today on high volume. Trading up to $1.29 lower after the open, the stock managed to reverse during the session as bulls took control ending the day above its opening price.

Daily Candlestick Chart (UPS as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $1.85 (1.54%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $1.64. Weekly volatility is also higher, being way above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 120.68, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 120.86 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 119.06 in the prior session, the market found buyers again around the same price level today at 119.01.
Though United Parcel is currently in a short-term down trend, this might just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.
Further selling could move prices lower should the market test August's close-by low at 117.72.
