Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 68.70 (R1), Acacia Communications closed below it after spiking up to 68.85 earlier during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels significance going forward.

The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 68.90 where further buy stops could get activated. With prices trading close to this year's high at 69.13, upside momentum might accelerate should the market be able to break out to new highs for the year. Further buying could move prices higher should the market test August's nearby high at 68.93.
