Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Northern Star (NST.AX) as at Jun 14, 2018

Thursday's trading range was A$0.16 (2.56%), that's above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.13. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 6.23 and 6.41 which it has been in now for the last trading week.

Notwithstanding a weak opening the market managed to close above the previous day's open and close, forming a bullish Engulfing Candle.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 6.40, Northern Star closed below it after spiking as high as 6.41 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. The stock was bought again around 6.25 after having seen lows at 6.23, 6.25 and 6.24 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level. After spiking up to 6.41 during the day, NST.AX found resistance at the 50-day moving average at 6.40.

The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term. The share managed to break above the 100-day moving average at 6.33 today for the first time since June 1st.

Buying could speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 6.49 where further buy stops might get triggered.
