Did you know?

Dead cross

In technical analysis, what happens when the short moving average price of a stock (say, its 20-day moving average) falls below a longer moving average (say, its 50-day average).

For chartists, this cross is a sign that sentiment in the market has turned against the stock, especially if up to that point two moving averages have been moving roughly in parallel.
