By Robert Cotter

Today, shares of Arch Coal (NYSE:ACI) have crossed bullishly above their 10-day moving average of $7.33 on a volume of 5.8 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, Arch Coal share prices have been bracketed by a low of $5.16 and a high of $15.94 and are now at $7.45, 44% above that low price. Over the last five market days, the 200-day moving average (MA) has gone down 0.6% while the 50-day MA has remained constant.

Arch Coal has overhead space with shares priced $7.45, or 20.0% below the average consensus analyst price target of $9.32. The stock should discover initial support at its 200-day moving average (MA) of $7.19 and subsequent support at its 50-day MA of $7.12.
