Prices are trading close to a key support level at 3.25. Breaking below the key support level at 3.29 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term. BWP Trust broke below the 20-day moving average at 3.28 today for the first time since July 11th.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 3.25 where further sell stops could get activated. With prices trading close to this year's high at 3.35, upside momentum might speed up should the stock be able to break out to new highs for the year. As prices are trading close to July's low at 3.24, downside momentum could accelerate should the market mark new lows for the month.
