Fresh Del Monte - FDP - close: 30.55 chg: -1.16 stop: 29.99

Whoa! FDP is starting to get volatile again. The stock completely erased Friday's gain with Monday's 3.65 percent decline on above average volume. Not only is today's drop a failed rally at the $32.00 level. This is also a technical two-day reversal pattern. We are exiting now to avoid any further surprises. If the two-day candlestick pattern is correct then FDP should trade lower in the short-term.
