EQT Corporation (EQT) Technical Analysis Report for Apr 16, 2018 | by Techniquant Editorial Team
Moving higher for the 2nd day in a row, EQT finished Monday at 49.01 edging higher $0.16 (0.33%) on low volume. Today's closing price of 49.01 marks the highest close since March 21st. Trading $0.45 higher after the open, the share was unable to hold its gains as the bears took control ending the day below its opening price. Closing within the previous day's range, prices failed to decisively move beyond the prior day's trading range in a lackluster session. Ending the day with an indecisive close, neither buyers nor sellers were able to gain control during the session.
Daily Candlestick Chart (EQT as at Apr 16, 2018):
Monday's trading range was $1.04 (2.12%), that's below last trading month's daily average range of $1.42. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average. Prices continued to consolidate within a tight trading range between 48.05 and 49.62 which it has been in now for the last three days.
After trading as low as 48.58 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 48.60. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. After spiking up to 49.62 during the day, the market found resistance at the 50-day moving average at 49.49.
While EQT is experiencing a short-term up trend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long term trends are still in negative territory.
