The ETF shows weakness in the short-term (in accordance with its long-term downtrend) with only the medium-term trend being bullish.

Order Flow

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 14.40 where further buy stops could get activated. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 13.78 where further sell stops could get triggered. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test April's nearby low at 12.99.


Both sentiments, the classical technical analysis and our quantitative statistics are in perfect alignment today showing a neutral sentiment for the next trading day.
