Daily chart for PDCO

Volatility

Monday's trading range was $1.17 (5.08%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of $0.82. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.

Support/Resistance

The market was bought again around 22.66 after having seen lows at 22.58, 22.62 and 22.65 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level.

Trend

While the share 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

Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 22.58 where further sell stops could get activated.

Conclusion

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