Even with a strong opening the market closed below the prior day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle. Additionally, one bearish candlestick pattern matches today's price action, the Black Candle.

Prices are trading close to the key technical support level at 55.60 (S1). Prices broke below the key technical support level at 56.84 (now R1), which is likely to act as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 58.32 in the previous session, the share ran into sellers again around the same price level today, missing to move higher than 58.50.

Crossing below the upper Bollinger Band, prices have lost at least some of their upward momentum in the short-term and might now be heading back down towards the mean of the Bollinger Bands at 55.35.

The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Further buying could move prices higher should the market test August's close-by high at 58.68.
