Friday's trading range was $0.72 (0.89%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.09. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
During the whole day, prices traded within the previous day's range, unable to trade above the prior day's high or below the previous day's low forming an Inside Bar.
After trading as low as 80.46 during the day, the market bounced off the key support level at 80.49. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. After having been unable to move above 81.32 in the prior session, Xylem Inc. ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 81.18.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 81.32 where further buy stops could get activated.
