From Schaeffer's Research:

The shares of Bunge Limited (BG) are off to a rough start today after the stock was downgraded from "buy" to "hold" at Deutsche Bank. The stock has gapped lower and is now resting on support at its rising 20-day moving average. The equity has been guided higher by its 10-day and 20-day moving averages since late December.
