Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 174.66, the stock closed below it after spiking as high as 174.93 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels importance as resistance going forward.
The trend is clearly bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the short, medium and long-term. The market broke below the 100-day moving average at 174.13 today for the first time since February 5th.
