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.
After having been unable to move lower than 40.49 in the previous session, the stock found buyers again around the same price level today at 40.48.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
With prices trading close to this year's high at 41.99, upside momentum might accelerate should the share be able to break out to new highs for the year.
