Support/Resistance

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 184.36, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 184.80 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

Trend

The market shows strength in the short-term supported by its long-term uptrend with only the medium-term trend being bearish.

Buying could speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 186.33 where further buy stops might get triggered. Further buying could move prices higher should the market test April's nearby high at 188.80.

Conclusion

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