Order Flow

Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 169.58 where further sell stops could get activated. With prices trading close to this year's high at 178.34, upside momentum might speed up should CTAS be able to break out to new highs for the year.


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