Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Xilinx Inc. (XLNX) as at May 17, 2018

Thursday's trading range was $1.10 (1.55%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.45. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 71.89, Xilinx Inc closed below it after spiking as high as 71.89 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

The stock shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 71.89 where further buy stops could get activated. Further buying might move prices higher should the market test April's close-by high at 72.45.
