Daily Candlestick Chart (XYL as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $0.99 (1.29%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.45. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way above average.
Breaking below the key support level at 75.87 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.
Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
