Daily chart for ADP
Volatility

Monday's trading range was $1.70 (1.46%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $2.64. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Support/Resistance

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 117.22, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 117.50 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

Trend

ADP shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish. The market managed to break above the 100-day moving average at 115.56 today for the first time since April 10th.

Order Flow

Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 114.48 where further sell stops could get activated. Trading close to February's high at 121.92 we might see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get triggered.

Conclusion

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