Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Versum Materials Inc (VSM) as at Aug 10, 2018

Friday's trading range was $0.75 (2.0%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.88. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 36.64. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 37.65, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 37.79 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 36.63 where further sell stops might get activated. Further selling could move prices lower should the market test July's close-by low at 36.50.
