In a volatile session, prices traded above the previous day's high as well as below the prior day's low, forming a bullish Outside Bar.
After trading as low as 1543.25 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 1548.50. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. The market found buyers again today around 1543.25 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 1545.50 in the previous session and at 1545.00 two days ago. After spiking up to 1557.50 during the day, Experian found resistance at the 200-day moving average at 1554.55.
EXPN.L shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish.
Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 1570.50 where further buy stops might get triggered.
