Help!  Police!  Pre-Paid Legal Services (PPD) is getting beat down by its 50-day Moving Average! Again!

This is the third time this year that PPD has failed to penetrate the 50-day MA (blue line).  Things were looking promising too - this stock showed up on a Bullish MACD scan yesterday (see the MACD Histogram going positive?) after a strong up day with good volume.  Still, this chart deserves to be watched closely as increased volume may lead (eventually) to a strong upside breakout.
