Today, shares of SPX (NYSE:SPW) have fallen below their 10-day MA of $76.17 on a volume of 260K shares. This may provide short-term investors a chance for a short position, as such a crossover often suggests lower prices in the near term.

Potential upside of 13.9% exists for SPX, based on a current level of $73.64 and analysts' average consensus price target of $83.87. The stock should hit resistance at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $78.56, as well as support at its 200-day MA of $69.21.
