Daily chart for IFF
Volatility

Monday's trading range was $2.79 (2.01%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $2.46. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.

Support/Resistance

After trading as low as 137.74 during the day, the market bounced off the key support level at 137.89. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward.

Trend

While the share is experiencing a short-term up trend, this might just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory. IFF managed to break above the 50-day moving average at 138.82 today for the first time since August 9, 2017.

Order Flow

Further buying could move prices higher should the market test March's nearby high at 142.73.

Conclusion

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