Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 66.34 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 64.92 where further sell stops could get activated. Further buying might move prices higher should the market test March's nearby high at 66.77. As prices are trading close to April's low at 63.63, downside momentum could accelerate should Daimler mark new lows for the month.
