Daily Candlestick Chart (SDF.AX as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.05 (1.77%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.07. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 2.85. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 2.93. The market ran into sellers again today around 2.88 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 2.87 in the previous session and at 2.88 two days ago.
While the share is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive. The stock managed to break above the 100-day moving average at 2.88 today for the first time since April 30th.
Buying might accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 2.92 where further buy stops could get triggered. Trading close to July's low at 2.76 we might see further downside momentum if potential sell stops at the level get activated.
