Technical Forecast:

Moving lower for the 4th day in a row, AAP ended Monday at 106.45 edging lower $0.16 (-0.15%). Today's closing price of 106.45 marks the lowest close since February 20th. Trading $1.10 higher after the open, the market was unable to hold its gains as the bears took control ending the day below its opening price. Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move beyond the prior day's trading range in a lackluster session. Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.

Daily chart for AAP

Monday's trading range was $3.01 (2.81%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $4.04. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.


After trading as low as 105.02 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 105.21. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 105.39 in the previous session, the stock found buyers again around the same price level today at 105.02.


Although still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already.

Order Flow

With prices trading close to this year's low at 99.66, downside momentum could accelerate should AAP break out to new lows for the year. Trading close to February's low at 103.29 we might see further downside momentum if potential sell stops at the level get activated.


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