Daily Candlestick Chart (AMC.AX as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was A$0.21 (1.5%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.19. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 13.77. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 13.99, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 13.99 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term. The stock broke below the 50-day moving average at 13.87 today for the first time since June 1st.
Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 13.58 where further sell stops could get activated.
