Moving lower for the 2nd day in a row, GEM.AX ended the week 0.85% higher at 2.38 after losing A$0.05 (-2.06%) today. Today's closing price of 2.38 marks the lowest close since July 6th. Closing below Thursday's low at 2.41, the share confirms its breakout through the prior session's low having traded A$0.04 below it intraday. Ending with a weak close near the low of the day sets a bearish note for the next session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (GEM.AX as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.09 (3.7%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.07. Weekly volatility is also higher, being slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 2.34. Breaking below the key support level at 2.40 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After trading as low as 2.37 during the day, the stock found support at the 20-day moving average at 2.38.
Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 2.34 where further sell stops could get activated. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test June's nearby low at 2.29.
