Daily Candlestick Chart (SGE.L as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was £4.80 (0.72%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of £12.39. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 661.60 and 673.20 which it has been in now for the last three days.
During the whole day, prices traded within the prior day's range, unable to trade above the previous day's high or below the prior day's low forming an Inside Bar.
After trading as low as 668.20 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 669.20. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. Sage Group was sold again around 673.00 after having seen highs at 673.20, 672.00 and 672.20 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 673.20 where further buy stops could get triggered.
