Volatility

Monday's trading range was $0.65 (1.01%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $1.33. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 63.21 and 64.70 which it has been in now for the last trading week.

Support/Resistance

Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 64.70.

Trend

Although the stock is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.

Order Flow

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 64.70 where further buy stops could get activated. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 63.21 where further sell stops could get triggered. Further buying might move prices higher should the market test March's nearby high at 65.90.

Conclusion

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