Increasing Volatility Within Base

Note:  The historical stock examples given below are for EDUCATIONAL USE ONLY.  They ARE NOT to be used to make buy/sell decisions in today's market.  For more information, please read the HSR Terms of Use.


After an advance, price begins to base/consolidate, but it does so in a wild manner.

What you need to know

Unless the market is volatile and erratic, it's not normal for a stock to show wild swings within its basing structure. 

In a healthy base within a non-volatile market, volatility may contract as trading quiets down.

You'll often see wild swings within a base after a stock has already made a large move higher, which is a warning sign to respect.
