Price Action

In a volatile session, prices traded above the previous day's high as well as below the prior day's low, forming a bullish Outside Bar. In spite of a weak opening the share managed to close above the previous day's open and close, forming a bullish Engulfing Candle.


Breaking through the key resistance level at 197.88 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 202.55.


The stock shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish. Barclays managed to break above the 200-day moving average at 199.28 today for the first time since June 11th.

Order Flow

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 203.40 where further buy stops could get triggered. As prices are trading close to June's high at 204.70, upside momentum might speed up should BARC.L mark new highs for the month.


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