Union Pacific Corp (UNP): Price Now Near $218.15; Daily Chart Shows Downtrend on 50 Day Basis

At the time of this writing, UNP (Get Ratings)’s price is down $-0.84 (-0.38%) from the hour prior. UNP has seen its price go down 5 out of the past 5 hours, thus creating some compelling opportunities for bears. As for the trend on the hourly timeframe, we see the clearest trend on the 50 hour timeframe. Most noteworthy in the world of moving averages on the hourly chart is that the 100, 20 and 50 hour moving averages have been crossed, so that price is now turning below them.
