Daily Candlestick Chart (WBC.AX as at Jul 13, 2018):
Friday's trading range was A$0.52 (1.74%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of A$0.36. 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 29.33 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 29.51. 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 29.88.
Although still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
Buying could speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 29.92 where further buy stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to July's low at 29.12, downside momentum could accelerate should Westpac Banking mark new lows for the month.
