Only positive signals in the chart today. Air Products and Chemicals Inc holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $220.47 and $211.67. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Monday June 17, 2019, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely.

Support & Resistance
Air Products and Chemicals Inc finds support from accumulated volume at $213.65.
This stock is usually traded at good volume, and with minor daily changes the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $3.13 (1.41%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 1.54%.
Since the Air Products and Chemicals Inc has been rising for 6 days in a row, the risk for the next couple of days has increased. We don't expect a major reaction as the stock is in very good shape technically, and therefore hold a positive evaluation despite the very short term risk.
Our recommended stoploss: $213.39 (-4.58%) (This stock has medium daily movements and this gives medium risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 5 days ago.)

Several short-term signals, along with a general good trend, are positive and we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for this stock to perform well in the short-term. Due to some small weaknesses in the technical picture we have downgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Strong Buy Candidate to a Buy Candidate.
