Daily Candlestick Chart (SEK.AX as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.45 (2.1%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.39. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.
Breaking through the key resistance level at 21.53 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 22.02.
Though Seek Limited 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 20-day moving average at 21.75 today for the first time since June 6th.
As prices are trading close to July's high at 22.00, upside momentum might accelerate should the share mark new highs for the month.
