Friday's trading range was $0.37 (1.01%), that's far below last trading month's daily average range of $0.55.

After trading as low as 36.42 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 36.45. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 36.42 in the prior session, the market found buyers again around the same price level today at 36.42. After trading as low as 36.42 during the day, ConAgra Foods found support at the 20-day moving average at 36.52.

While still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already. CAG broke below the 200-day moving average at 36.72 today for the first time since August 8th.

Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 36.11 where further sell stops could get triggered.
