Daily Candlestick Chart (UPS as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.23 (1.14%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $2.23. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Although 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.
Further buying could move prices higher should the market test March's nearby high at 111.20.
