Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move past the prior day's trading range.
Daily Candlestick Chart (CGC.AX as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.20 (2.52%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.22. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
After trading as low as 7.80 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 7.83. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward.
While Costa Group is currently in a short-term down trend, this might just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.
