Daily Candlestick Chart (MMS.AX as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was A$0.39 (2.34%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.42. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 16.38. After spiking up to 16.82 during the day, the stock found resistance at the 50-day moving average at 16.79.
Though the market is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory. MMS.AX broke below the 200-day moving average at 16.56 today for the first time since June 7th.
Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 16.32 where further sell stops might get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's low at 15.63, downside momentum could speed up should Mcmillan Shakespeare break out to new lows for the year. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test May's close-by low at 15.90.
