During the whole day, prices traded within the previous day's range, unable to trade above the prior day's high or below the previous day's low forming an Inside Bar.
Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 129.25. After having been unable to move above 129.25 in the prior session, the stock ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 129.20.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 129.25 where further buy stops could get triggered.
