Support/Resistance

After trading as low as 103.51 during the day, the market bounced off the key support level at 103.78. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.

Trend

The share shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish. LYB managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 104.31 today for the first time since March 21st.

Order Flow

Selling could speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 102.63 where further sell stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to April's high at 105.95, upside momentum could accelerate should the stock mark new highs for the month.

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