Breaking below the key support level at 44.28 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.
Though still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already. The stock broke below the 20-day moving average at 45.06 today for the first time since February 27th.
As prices are trading close to April's low at 43.15, downside momentum might accelerate should the share mark new lows for the month.
