Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Sonic Healthcare Ltd (SHL.AX) as at Aug 10, 2018

Friday's trading range was A$0.17 (0.65%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.36. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 26.10, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 26.12 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

Though the share is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 26.29 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 25.69 where further sell stops could get activated.
