Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Oil Search Ltd (OSH.AX) as at Apr 17, 2018

Tuesday's trading range was A$0.13 (1.69%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.13. Weekly volatility is also higher, being way above the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.

After trading as low as 7.65 during the day, Oil Search bounced off the key support level at 7.67. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward.

The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Trading close to February's high at 7.83 we might see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get triggered.
