Daily Candlestick Chart (TCL.AX as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.09 (0.75%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.16. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 12.02, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 12.05 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 12.06 in the previous session, the stock ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 12.05.
The market shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish.
Buying could accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 12.06 where further buy stops might get activated. As prices are trading close to July's high at 12.27, upside momentum could speed up should Transurban Group mark new highs for the month.
