Four candlestick patterns are matching today's price action, the Northern Doji which is known as bearish pattern and three neutral patterns, the Doji, the Long-Legged Doji and the Rickshaw-Man. The last time a Rickshaw-Man showed up on June 5, 2018, SGRO.L gained 1.17% on the following trading day.

Prices are trading close to the key technical support level at 612.20 (S1). Prices are trading close to the key technical resistance level at 623.20 (R1). After having been unable to move lower than 611.80 in the previous session, the share found buyers again around the same price level today at 612.60.

While the market is experiencing a short-term uptrend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bearish.

Further buying might move prices higher should the market test December's nearby high at 622.00.
