Volatility

Thursday's trading range was $1.20 (1.9%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.30. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way above average.

Support/Resistance

After having been unable to move above 63.85 in the prior session, the share ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 64.06.

Trend

Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.

Order Flow

Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 64.85 where further buy 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 bearish.
