Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 36.76, the share closed below it after spiking as high as 37.17 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 35.68 where further sell stops could get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's low at 34.24, downside momentum might speed up should the market break out to new lows for the year. Further selling could move prices lower should the market test March's nearby low at 35.36.
