Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 6118.00, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 6224.00 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

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