Friday's trading range was A$0.15 (1.07%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.16. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.
After trading as low as 13.82 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 13.87. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term. The stock broke below the 20-day moving average at 13.95 today for the first time since March 22nd.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 13.81 where further sell stops could get activated.
