Aurizon Holdings Limited (AZJ.AX) Technical Analysis Report for Sep 14, 2018 | by Techniquant Editorial Team
AZJ.AX ended the week 0.72% higher at 4.20 after flat today. Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move beyond the prior day's trading range in a lackluster session. Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (AZJ.AX as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.03 (0.71%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.07. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Even with a weak opening the market managed to close above the previous day's open and close, forming a bullish Engulfing Candle.
After trading as low as 4.18 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 4.19. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 4.18 in the prior session, the share found buyers again around the same price level today at 4.18.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 4.15 where further sell stops could get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 4.11, downside momentum might speed up should Aurizon Holdings break out to new lows for the year.
