After trading as low as 23.23 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 23.26. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 23.71, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 23.78 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. The stock was bought again around 23.23 after having seen lows at 23.30, 23.26 and 23.29 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level.
