Daily Candlestick Chart (USB as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $0.62 (1.21%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.70. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 50.65. Breaking below the key support level at 51.08 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After trading as low as 50.74 during the day, the share found support at the 50-day moving average at 50.79.
Although still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 51.70 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 50.61 where further sell stops could get activated. As prices are trading close to June's low at 50.50, downside momentum might speed up should U. S. Bancorp mark new lows for the month.
