Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for South32 Ltd (S32.AX) as at Jun 14, 2018

Thursday's trading range was A$0.07 (1.86%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.08. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Regardless of a weak opening South32 Ltd managed to close above the previous day's open and close, forming a bullish Engulfing Candle.

The share found buyers again today around 3.75 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 3.74 in the prior session and at 3.74 two days ago. After spiking up to 3.82 during the day, the market found resistance at the 20-day moving average at 3.81.

Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.

As prices are trading close to June's low at 3.72, downside momentum could speed up should S32.AX mark new lows for the month.
