The bulls were in full control today, moving the market higher throughout the whole session.

Daily Candlestick Chart (SGM.AX as at Jun 14, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was A$0.62 (3.69%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.45. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Breaking through the key resistance level at 17.26 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. The market found buyers again today around 16.70 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 16.69 in the previous session and at 16.68 two days ago.
While still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
With prices trading close to this year's high at 18.05, upside momentum might speed up should the share be able to break out to new highs for the year. Further buying could move prices higher should the market test May's nearby high at 17.43.
