Friday's trading range was A$0.05 (1.21%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.05. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
After trading as low as 4.10 during the day, the market bounced off the key support level at 4.11. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.

The stock shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish.
Further buying could move prices higher should the market test June's close-by high at 4.22.
