Imperial Brands was sold again around 2625.00 after having seen highs at 2627.00, 2627.00 and 2627.50 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level.

Trend

The stock shows weakness in the short-term (in accordance with its long-term downtrend) with only the medium-term trend being bullish.

Order Flow

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 2627.50 where further buy stops could get activated. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 2560.00 where further sell stops could get triggered.

Conclusion

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