After trading as low as 7.01 during the day, Sydney Airport bounced off the key support level at 7.02. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 7.14. After trading as low as 7.01 during the day, the market found support at the 200-day moving average at 7.03.
Although still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.
Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 6.96 where further sell stops might get triggered. Trading close to May's low at 6.90 we could see further downside momentum if potential sell stops at the level get activated.
