Valero Energy Crosses Below its 10-day MA (VLO)

By James Quinn

Valero Energy (NYSE:VLO) crossed under its 10-day moving average of $52.02 on a volume of 925K 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.

Valero Energy share prices have moved between a 52-week high of $73.88 and a 52-week low of $50.03 and are now trading 3% above that low price at $51.44 per share. In the last five trading sessions, the 50-day moving average (MA) has remained constant while the 200-day MA has slid 0.3%.
