Daily Candlestick Chart (WAT as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $2.74 (1.43%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $3.86. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 191.82, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 191.88 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
With prices trading close to this year's low at 187.28, downside momentum might accelerate should the share break out to new lows for the year.
