Daily Candlestick Chart (XL as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $0.17 (0.31%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.21. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.
After trading as low as 55.44 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 55.49. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying could speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 55.63 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 55.24 where further sell stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to April's high at 55.63, upside momentum could speed up should the share mark new highs for the month.
