Daily chart for MPL.AX

Friday's trading range was A$0.10 (3.25%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.06. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Price Action

After moving higher in the prior session, the market closed lower but above the previous day's open today, forming a bearish Harami Candle.


Breaking below the key support level at 3.00 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 2.99 in the prior session, the stock found buyers again around the same price level today at 2.98.


The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term. Medibank Private broke below the 200-day moving average at 3.06 today for the first time since May 7th.

Order Flow

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 2.98 where further sell stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to May's low at 2.94, downside momentum could speed up should the share mark new lows for the month.


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