Daily technical analysis candlestick chart for Whitehaven Coal (WHC.AX) as at Jul 13, 2018

Friday's trading range was A$0.14 (2.45%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of A$0.14. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 5.53. Breaking below the key support level at 5.70 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 5.56 in the previous session, the market found buyers again around the same price level today at 5.58.

Although Whitehaven Coal is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.

Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 5.56 where further sell stops could get triggered.
