Daily Candlestick Chart (XL as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $0.29 (0.52%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.39. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Regardless of a weak opening the stock managed to close above the previous day's open and close, forming a bullish Engulfing Candle.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 55.56. After spiking up to 55.51 during the day, the market found resistance at the 50-day moving average at 55.41.
Although still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.
Further buying might move prices higher should the market test April's nearby high at 55.90.
