Daily Candlestick Chart (MFG.AX as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.43 (1.77%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.49. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.
After trading as low as 24.14 during the day, Magellan Fin bounced off the key support level at 24.30. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 24.74.
Although still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
Trading close to May's high at 24.74 we could see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get triggered.
