During the whole day, prices traded within the prior day's range, unable to trade above the previous day's high or below the prior day's low forming an Inside Bar.
After trading as low as 482.44 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 483.29. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 493.00.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying could speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 493.00 where further buy stops might get activated. 2,017's high at 499.00 is within reach and we could see further upside momentum should the market manage to break out past.
