Daily Candlestick Chart (CTX.AX as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was A$0.48 (1.57%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.58. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 29.99. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 30.77.
Although the stock is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 30.83 where further buy stops could get triggered.
