iShares FTSE Bearish Moving Average Crossover Alert (FXI)

By Amy Schwartz

iShares FTSE (NYSE:FXI) shares have crossed bearishly below their 10-day moving average of $37.70 on a volume of 4.1 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.

In the past 52 weeks, iShares FTSE share prices have been bracketed by a low of $32.13 and a high of $40.32 and are now at $37.33, 16% above that low price. In the last five trading sessions, the 50-day moving average (MA) has climbed 0.6% while the 200-day MA has remained constant.
