Order Flow

Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 10601.60 where further sell stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to May's low at 10601.60, downside momentum could accelerate should the index mark new lows for the month.

Conclusion

While classical technical analysis indicates a bearish sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being neutral.
