Daily Candlestick Chart (TLS.AX as at Sep 14, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.04 (1.25%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.09. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 3.14 and 3.20 which it has been in now for the last three days.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 3.22. The share ran into sellers again today around 3.20 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 3.20 in the previous session and at 3.20 two days ago. After trading as low as 3.16 during the day, the market found support at the 200-day moving average at 3.18.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term. The stock managed to break above the 200-day moving average at 3.18 today for the first time since September 11th.
Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 3.22 where further buy stops could get activated.
