By Amy Schwartz

Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) shares have crossed bearishly below their 10-day moving average of $89.70 on a volume of 1.5 million shares. This may provide swing traders with an opportunity for a short position, as such a crossover often suggests lower prices in the near term.

Exxon Mobil share prices have moved between a 52-week high of $90.46 and a 52-week low of $66.55 and are now trading 34% above that low price at $89.37 per share. In the last five trading sessions, the 50-day moving average (MA) has climbed 0.6% while the 200-day MA has risen 0.2%.
