In a volatile session, prices traded above the previous day's high as well as below the prior day's low, forming a bearish Outside Bar.
Breaking below the key support level at 37.89 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 38.27 in the previous session, the stock ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 38.32.

Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 37.43 where further sell stops could get activated.
