Daily chart for XYL
Volatility

Monday's trading range was $0.91 (1.17%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $1.61. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.

Support/Resistance

Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 78.55. After having been unable to move above 77.78 in the previous session, the stock ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 77.99.

Trend

The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term. Xylem Inc. managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 76.93 today for the first time since April 12th.

Order Flow

Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 76.44 where further sell stops might get triggered. With prices trading close to this year's high at 79.83, upside momentum could speed up should XYL be able to break out to new highs for the year. As prices are trading close to April's high at 78.12, upside momentum might accelerate 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.
