Daily chart for ALXN
Volatility

Monday's trading range was $3.58 (3.19%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $3.81. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.

Price Action

In spite of a strong opening the market closed below the prior day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle.

Support/Resistance

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 107.51. The stock ran into sellers again today around 112.87 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 113.00 in the previous session and at 113.10 two days ago.

Trend

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

Order Flow

Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 107.73 where further sell stops could get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's low at 104.95, downside momentum might accelerate should the share break out to new lows for the year. As prices are trading close to April's low at 106.10, downside momentum could speed up should the market mark new lows for the month.

Conclusion

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