Support/Resistance

After trading as low as 83.95 during the day, BASF bounced off the key support level at 84.08. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 83.88 in the previous session, the share found buyers again around the same price level today at 83.95.

Trend

Though 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

Buying could speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 84.91 where further buy stops might get activated. Further buying could move prices higher should the market test March's close-by high at 86.52.

Both sentiments, the classical technical analysis and our quantitative statistics are in perfect alignment today showing a neutral sentiment for the next trading day.
