Daily Candlestick Chart (IOF.AX as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was A$0.02 (0.39%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.07. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way above average.
During the whole day, prices traded within the prior day's range, unable to trade above the previous day's high or below the prior day's low forming an Inside Bar.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 5.17, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 5.17 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying might accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 5.18 where further buy stops could get triggered.
