By Mallory Stone

Today, shares of Chico's FAS (NYSE:CHS) have crossed bearishly below their 10-day moving average of $17.78 on a volume of 1.4 million shares. This may provide swing traders with an opportunity for a short position, as such a crossover often suggests lower prices in the near term.

Potential upside of 14.0% exists for Chico's FAS, based on a current level of $17.61 and analysts' average consensus price target of $20.08. The stock should find resistance at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $18.16, as well as support at its 200-day MA of $16.95.
