Monday's trading range was $1.06 (1.98%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.43.

Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 52.26 and 54.09 which it has been in now for the last trading week.

Price Action

After moving lower in the previous session, the stock managed to close higher but below the prior day's open, forming a bullish Harami Candle.


Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 53.88, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 54.07 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. BorgWarner ran into sellers again today around 54.07 for the third trading day in a row after having found sellers at 54.01 in the previous session and at 54.09 two days ago.


BWA shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish.

Order Flow

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 54.09 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 52.69 where further sell stops could get activated. Trading close to February's high at 56.43 we might see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get triggered.


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