Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 28.91, Corning Inc. closed below it after spiking as high as 28.95 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.

Although still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already. The stock managed to break above the 100-day moving average at 28.64 today for the first time since June 11th.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 28.44 where further sell stops could get triggered.
