After trading as low as 11.36 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 11.36. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. After spiking up to 11.54 during the day, the share found resistance at the 20-day moving average at 11.48.


The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term. The market managed to break above the 50-day moving average at 11.42 today for the first time since June 5th.

Order Flow

Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 11.18 where further sell stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to June's low at 11.04, downside momentum could accelerate should ILU.AX mark new lows for the month.
