The trend direction in short term is now bearish. The medium-term trend outlook for the stock is neutral. It is moving sideways in a range between $12.82 and $10.68 over the last six months. Long-term investors can hold the stock with a stop at $10.68.

There is no change from my previous updates on Banner Corporation (NASDAQ:BANR). The stock looks poised to move higher. The technical daily chart shows possibility of new rally as the stock bounced up after dropping back to 50 day moving average. In addition, the 50 day moving average has crossed on top over 200 day moving average early this month to form the Golden Cross. Typically, when a Golden Cross is formed the stock will be heading into a strong bull market. At the same time, the daily stochastics is reaching the oversold zone. These technical factors suggest taking a long position.
