Daily chart for XL
Volatility

Monday's trading range was $0.17 (0.31%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.21. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average.

Support/Resistance

After trading as low as 55.44 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 55.49. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.

Trend

The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.

Order Flow

Buying could speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 55.63 where further buy stops might get activated. Selling could accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 55.24 where further sell stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to April's high at 55.63, upside momentum could speed up should the share mark new highs for the month.

Conclusion

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