Wednesday's trading range has been $0.48 (0.9%), that's below the last trading month's daily average range of $0.80. Weekly volatility is also lower, being slightly below the market's average weekly trading range. The longer-term, monthly volatility is currently slightly lower than usual for XEL.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 53.90 where further buy stops could get triggered. 2018's high at 54.11 is within reach and we might see further upside momentum should the share manage to break out beyond.
