Moving lower for the 3rd day in a row, DLX.AX finished the week 0.51% higher at 7.84 after losing A$0.02 (-0.25%) today on low volume. Trading A$0.03 higher after the open, the stock was unable to hold its gains as the bears took control ending the day below its opening price.

Ending with a weak close near the low of the day sets a bearish note for the next session.

Though Duluxgroup Limited is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.
