Wednesday's trading range has been $13.85 (4.44%), that's below the last trading month's daily average range of $22.98. Weekly volatility is also lower, being below the market's average weekly trading range. The longer-term, monthly volatility is currently notably lower than usual for ROP.

Buyers managed to take out the key technical resistance level at 311.84 (now S1), which is likely to act as support going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 307.03 in the prior session, the market found buyers again around the same price level today at 306.91.

While the stock is experiencing a short-term uptrend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bearish.

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 327.15 where further buy stops could get triggered.
