Trimble Navigation (TRMB) Just Overtook the 50-Day Moving Average

From a technical perspective, Trimble Navigation (TRMB) is looking like an interesting pick, as it just reached a key level of support. TRMB recently overtook the 50-day moving average, and this suggests a short-term bullish trend.

The 50-day simple moving average is one of three major moving averages used by traders and analysts to determine support or resistance levels for a wide range of securities. But the 50-day is considered to be more important because it's the first marker of an up or down trend.

With a winning combination of earnings estimate revisions and hitting a key technical level, investors should keep their eye on TRMB for more gains in the near future.
