The market shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish. The stock managed to break above the 100-day moving average at 96.45 today for the first time since April 10th.

Order Flow

Buying could speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 97.62 where further buy stops might get triggered. Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 95.86 where further sell stops might get activated. As prices are trading close to April's high at 98.00, upside momentum could speed up should the share mark new highs for the month.

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