Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Oil Search Ltd (OSH.AX) as at May 18, 2018

Friday's trading range was A$0.10 (1.17%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.12. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 8.57, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 8.64 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

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

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 8.45 where further sell stops might get activated.
