This morning, leading design software and services company, Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADSK), is trading lower by nearly 15.0 percent on the session. The decline comes after the company reported earnings and announced a restructuring plan. Traders should note that ADSK stock is now trading below its important 50-day moving average. This puts the stock in a weak technical chart position.
Often when a stock declines this sharply from a high pivot it will indicate lower prices in the coming weeks. The next major chart support level for ADSK stock is around the $96.00 level. This area is where the stock broke out in May 2017. Generally, when a stock retests its breakout level it will be defended when retested.
