Daily chart for JHX.AX
Volatility

Friday's trading range was A$0.63 (2.74%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.34. Weekly volatility is also higher, being way above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Support/Resistance

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 22.29. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 23.02, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 23.04 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After spiking up to 23.04 during the day, James Hardie found resistance at the 50-day moving average at 23.04.

Trend

While the stock is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive. JHX.AX broke below the 100-day moving average at 22.72 today for the first time since July 3, 2017.

Order Flow

Trading close to March's low at 21.88 we might see further downside momentum if potential sell stops at the level get activated.

Conclusion

Both sentiments, the classical technical analysis and our quantitative statistics are in perfect alignment today showing a bearish sentiment for the next trading day.
