Price Action

Support/Resistance

Breaking through the key resistance level at 581.20 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward.

The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term. The market managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 578.29 today for the first time since May 30th.

Order Flow

Buying could speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 591.00 where further buy stops might get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's high at 593.30, upside momentum could accelerate should the share be able to break out to new highs for the year.

Conclusion

Even though both sentiments are bullish for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics are only bullish while the classical technical analysis metrics show a very bullish sentiment.
