Going forward, I am putting our 1st SUPPORT at some of the highs of the recent base and the coinciding round-$50.
Below there, our 2nd SUPPORT area is the rising 50-day moving average, currently at $47.73.
Of course, any above average volume declines would be the first concern for investors who bought Monday.
I ran my routine stock screens early this morning, yet did not add any new stocks to our watch lists.
