The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward. The stock found buyers again today around 64.48 for the third trading day in a row after having found demand at 64.46 in the prior session and at 64.35 two days ago. After spiking up to 65.36 during the day, CSX Corp. found resistance at the 20-day moving average at 64.75.

Selling might speed up should prices move below the nearby swing low at 64.35 where further sell stops could get activated. Further selling might move prices lower should the market test June's close-by low at 62.72.
