Monday's trading range was $1.28 (1.67%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $1.25. Weekly volatility is also higher, being slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.

Breaking through the key resistance level at 77.53 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward.

Although still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already. Duke Energy managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 77.08 today for the first time since March 27th.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the nearby swing high at 79.05 where further buy stops could get activated. Trading close to February's high at 79.63 we might see further upside momentum if potential buy stops at the level get triggered.
