Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for QBE Insurance Group Ltd (QBE.AX) as at Jul 13, 2018

Friday's trading range was A$0.11 (1.12%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.15. 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 9.80, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 9.87 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 9.75 in the prior session, the stock found buyers again around the same price level today at 9.76. After spiking up to 9.87 during the day, the share found resistance at the 100-day moving average at 9.86.

Though QBE Insurance is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.

Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 9.73 where further sell stops could get activated. As prices are trading close to July's low at 9.68, downside momentum might speed up should QBE.AX mark new lows for the month.
