Daily Candlestick Chart (EIX as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.42 (2.23%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $1.25. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is slightly below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.
Breaking through the key resistance level at 63.99 today, it is now likely to act as support going forward.
Though still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already. The share managed to break above the 100-day moving average at 64.14 today for the first time since October 19, 2017.
With prices trading close to this year's high at 66.91, upside momentum could accelerate should the stock be able to break out to new highs for the year.
