After trading as low as 87.54 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 87.75. The failure to close below the support could increase that levels importance as support going forward.
The trend is clearly bullish, showing an intact uptrend in the short, medium and long-term.
As prices are trading close to September's low at 87.41, downside momentum might accelerate should Target Corp. mark new lows for the month.
