Friday's trading range was A$0.04 (1.39%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.06.

Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 2.80 and 2.89 which it has been in now for the last three days.

Even with a strong opening the stock closed below the prior day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle.

After having been unable to move lower than 2.84 in the previous session, Telstra Corp found buyers again around the same price level today at 2.85.

The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 2.80 where further sell stops might get triggered.
