Order Flow

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 85.30 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 83.70 where further sell stops might get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's low at 81.93, downside momentum could accelerate should the stock break out to new lows for the year. As prices are trading close to April's high at 86.50, upside momentum might speed up should the market mark new highs for the month.
