Daily Candlestick Chart (WES.AX as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was A$0.29 (0.65%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.50. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being above average.
Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
2,017's high at 45.60 is within reach and we could see further upside momentum should the market manage to break out beyond.
