Breaking below the key support level at 64.98 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward.

After spiking up to 65.97 during the day, the stock found resistance at the 20-day moving average at 65.48.
Although REG is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive. The market broke below the 20-day moving average at 65.48 today for the first time since September 12th.
