The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term. AAL.L broke below the 20-day moving average at 1679.20 today for the first time since August 2nd.

Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 1639.60 where further sell stops might get triggered. Further selling could move prices lower should the market test July's nearby low at 1580.60.
