By David Diaz

Yahoo! (NASDAQ:YHOO) shares have crossed bearishly below their 10-day moving average of $36.93 on a volume of 2.9 million shares. Swing traders may find an opportunity for a short position, as such a crossover often suggests lower prices in the near term.

In the past 52 weeks, Yahoo! share prices have been bracketed by a low of $26.15 and a high of $45.07 and are now at $36.70, 40% above that low price. In the last five trading sessions, the 50-day moving average (MA) has climbed 1.3% while the 200-day MA has slid 0.2%.
