Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 4244.00 where further buy stops might get triggered. Selling could speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 4171.50 where further sell stops might get activated. As prices are trading close to July's low at 4156.50, downside momentum could accelerate should the stock mark new lows for the month.
