Support/Resistance

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 211.25, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 212.20 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

Trend

Although the market is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.

Order Flow

With prices trading close to this year's low at 203.67, downside momentum could speed up should ADS break out to new lows for the year. As prices are trading close to April's high at 214.04, upside momentum might accelerate should the stock mark new highs for the month.
