grade D 41.78 0.38% 0.16
HRL closed up 0.38 percent on Tuesday, November 12, 2019, on 64 percent of normal volume. The stock crossed above its 200 day moving average, improving its long-term outlook by crossing above that critical trendline. The price action carved out a bullish hammer (or hammer-like) candlestick pattern. That may indicate an upside reversal. Look for price to trade above the high of the hammer for confirmation.
