Daily chart for ANSS
Volatility

Monday's trading range was $3.21 (2.03%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $4.13. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Support/Resistance

After trading as low as 157.00 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 157.95. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. The market ran into sellers again today around 160.21 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 159.62 in the previous session and at 159.75 two days ago.

Trend

ANSS shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish. The share managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 158.55 today for the first time since March 2nd.

Order Flow

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 156.22 where further sell stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to April's high at 160.37, upside momentum could speed up should ANSYS mark new highs for the month.

Conclusion

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