Daily chart for PWR
Volatility

Monday's trading range was $0.52 (1.51%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $0.81. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 34.05 and 34.75 which it has been in now for the last three days.

Support/Resistance

Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 34.63, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 34.75 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After trading as low as 34.23 during the day, the share found support at the 20-day moving average at 34.25.

Trend

Although the market 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. PWR managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 34.25 today for the first time since March 20th.

Order Flow

Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 34.05 where further sell stops could get activated. As prices are trading close to April's high at 34.95, upside momentum might speed up should the stock mark new highs for the month.

Conclusion

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