Daily Candlestick Chart (MND.AX as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.20 (1.42%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.35. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.
During the whole day, prices traded within the previous day's range, unable to trade above the prior day's high or below the previous day's low forming an Inside Bar.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 13.98. After having been unable to move lower than 13.98 in the prior session, the share found buyers again around the same price level today at 14.00.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 13.98 where further sell stops might get activated. With prices trading close to this year's low at 13.46, downside momentum could speed up should the market break out to new lows for the year.
