Wal-Mart Stores Crosses Above its 10-day MA (WMT)

By Nick Russo

Wal-Mart Stores (NYSE:WMT) crossed over its 10-day moving average of $86.54 on a volume of 1.4 million shares. This may provide short-term investors a chance for a long position, as such a crossover often suggests higher prices in the near term.

In the past 52 weeks, Wal-Mart Stores share prices have been bracketed by a low of $65.28 and a high of $109.98 and are now at $86.78, 33% above that low price. Over the last five market days, the 200-day moving average (MA) has gone down 0.2% while the 50-day MA has advanced 0.2%.
