After spiking up to 4193.00 during the day, Whitbread found resistance at the 20-day moving average at 4183.20.

Trend

While WTB.L is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.

Order Flow

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 4224.00 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 4111.00 where further sell stops could get activated.

Conclusion

While classical technical analysis indicates a neutral sentiment for the next trading day, our quantitative statistics show a different picture being bullish.
