Daily chart for SHL.AX

Thursday's trading range was A$0.50 (2.06%), that's far 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 slightly above average.


After trading as low as 23.78 during the day, Sonic Healthcare bounced off the key support level at 23.82. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. Breaking below the key support level at 24.17 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 24.34 in the prior session, the market ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 24.28.


The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term. The stock broke below the 20-day moving average at 23.90 today for the first time since May 28th.

Order Flow

Further selling might move prices lower should the market test May's nearby low at 23.23.


Both sentiments, the classical technical analysis and our quantitative statistics are in perfect alignment today showing a bearish sentiment for the next trading day.
