Friday's trading range was $0.33 (1.17%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.39. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being way below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 27.94 and 28.43 which it has been in now for the last trading week.

Notwithstanding a strong opening the share closed below the previous day's open and close, forming a bearish Engulfing Candle.

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 27.92. CenterPoint Energy was bought again around 28.10 after having seen lows at 28.06, 28.08 and 28.09 in the last three trading sessions. Obviously there is something going on at that level.

Though the market is currently in a short-term down trend, this might just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.

Buying could speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 28.43 where further buy stops might get triggered. Selling could accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 28.06 where further sell stops might get activated. With prices trading close to this year's high at 28.54, upside momentum could speed up should CNP be able to break out to new highs for the year.
