Home Depot Crosses Below its 10-day MA (HD)

By Amy Schwartz

Home Depot (NYSE:HD) crossed under its 10-day moving average of $135.03 on a volume of 6.8 million shares. This may provide short-term investors a chance for a short position, as such a crossover often suggests lower prices in the near term.

Home Depot share prices have moved between a 52-week high of $137.82 and a 52-week low of $92.17 and are now trading 45% above that low price at $134.04 per share. Over the past week, the 200-day moving average (MA) has gone up 0.3% while the 50-day MA has advanced 0.7%.
