Volatility

Friday's trading range was £3.10 (0.96%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of £4.67. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average.

Support/Resistance

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 323.40, Direct Line closed below it after spiking as high as 323.60 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

Trend

The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Order Flow

Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 327.30 where further buy stops could get triggered. 2,017's low at 316.30 is within reach and we might see further downside momentum should the market break out past.

Conclusion

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