Edison International (EIX) Technical Analysis Report for May 17, 2018 | by Techniquant Editorial Team
Moving lower for the 3rd day in a row, EIX ended Thursday at 61.22 losing $0.20 (-0.33%). Today's closing price of 61.22 marks the lowest close since May 9th. Trading $0.35 higher after the open, the stock was unable to hold its gains as the bears took control ending the day below its opening price. Closing below Wednesday's low at 61.30, the share confirms its breakout through the prior session's low having traded $0.23 below it intraday. Ending with a weak close near the low of the day sets a bearish note for the next session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (EIX as at May 17, 2018):
Thursday's trading range was $0.75 (1.22%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $1.02. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being slightly above average.
Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 61.47, the market closed below it after spiking as high as 61.82 during the day. The failure to close above the resistance could increase that levels importance as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move above 61.83 in the previous session, Edison Int'l ran into sellers again around the same price level today, failing to move higher than 61.82.
EIX shows weakness in the short-term (in accordance with its long-term downtrend) with only the medium-term trend being bullish.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 60.23 where further sell stops could get triggered.
