sell-off and close below the 200-DMA ($50.90) that sees focus on layers of
support $48.32-49.57. Bears now look for a close below $49.57 to initially
pressure the 55-DMA ($49.14). Correcting studies add weight to the bearish case.
Layers of resistance are accumulating with bulls needing a close above the
21-DMA to gain breathing room and above $51.77 to return focus to $52.86-53.64.
