Thursday's trading range was A$0.81 (1.14%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of A$1.06. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Notwithstanding a weak opening Commonwealth Bank managed to close above the previous day's open and close, forming a bullish Engulfing Candle.

Breaking through the key resistance level at 70.80 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 71.71.

The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 71.78 where further buy stops could get triggered.
