Support/Resistance

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 97.81, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 97.93 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 97.69 in the prior session, ALL ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 97.93.

Trend

While the share 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

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 95.87 where further sell stops might get activated. Trading close to February's high at 99.56 we could 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 bearish.
