Daily Candlestick Chart (LLC.AX as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was A$0.26 (1.37%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.25. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 18.97, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 19.07 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 18.84 in the previous session, Lend Lease found buyers again around the same price level today at 18.81. After trading as low as 18.81 during the day, the market found support at the 20-day moving average at 18.83.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
As prices are trading close to June's low at 18.79, downside momentum might accelerate should LLC.AX mark new lows for the month.
