In a volatile session, prices traded above the prior day's high as well as below the previous day's low, forming a bullish Outside Bar.
After trading as low as 9.36 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 9.38. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 9.55. After having been unable to move lower than 9.37 in the prior session, the share found buyers again around the same price level today at 9.36.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 9.55 where further buy stops might get activated. With prices trading close to this year's high at 9.69, upside momentum could speed up should the market be able to break out to new highs for the year.
