Friday's trading range was A$0.27 (1.59%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.30. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 16.88 and 17.36 which it has been in now for the last trading week.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 17.29. After having been unable to move lower than 17.02 in the prior session, the market found buyers again around the same price level today at 16.98. After spiking up to 17.25 during the day, Brickworks Limited found resistance at the 20-day moving average at 17.18.
Though the share is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.
Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 16.88 where further sell stops could get triggered.
