Friday's trading range was £32.20 (1.89%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of £43.56. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

After trading as low as 1672.80 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 1680.80. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 1709.20. After trading as low as 1672.80 during the day, BHP found support at the 50-day moving average at 1686.63.

While still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.

Further buying could move prices higher should the market test July's nearby high at 1766.80.
