Daily Candlestick Chart (ALL.AX as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.58 (1.85%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.64. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.
In a volatile session, prices traded above the prior day's high as well as below the previous day's low, forming a bullish Outside Bar. Although trading as low as 31.01 during the day, Aristocrat Leisure has decisively rejected those price levels and formed a bullish Pin Bar closing A$0.53 above today's low.
After trading as low as 31.01 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 31.32. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
With prices trading close to this year's high at 32.05, upside momentum might accelerate should ALL.AX be able to break out to new highs for the year.
