Breaking through the key resistance level at 94.21 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward. After spiking up to 95.47 during the day, the stock found resistance at the 200-day moving average at 94.88.
While still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already.
