Microsoft's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Microsoft is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $36.00 short put and a strike $31.00 long put offers a potential 10.13% return on risk over the next 40 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $36.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.46 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.54 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $31.00 long put strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for Microsoft is bullish and the probability of a rise in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Microsoft is bullish.
The RSI indicator is at 70.99 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

Bing overhauls music video search to turn the results page into a jukebox
Mon, 11 Nov 2013 21:46:34 GMT
The Verge – Bing has introduced a new search experience for music videos designed to highlight popular tracks and let you preview songs directly from the results page. In addition to YouTube, Bing searches Vimeo, MTV, and Artist Direct, and organizes the videos it finds in a full-screen grid. The result is a search experience that appears slightly denser with information than results pages offered by Google or YouTube. It's annoying, then, that you can't get there directly from Bing.com — you have to click the videos tab on Bing or on individual search results pages.
