Steel Dynamics (NASDAQ:STLD) crossed under its 10-day moving average of $15.08 on a volume of 1.3 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.

Steel Dynamics (NASDAQ:STLD) has potential upside of 7.1% based on a current price of $14.94 and analysts' consensus price target of $16.00. The stock should discover initial support at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $13.66 and subsequent support at its 200-day MA of $12.56.
