Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 6.61 (R1), the stock closed below it after spiking up to 6.65 earlier during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels significance going forward.

The last time this happened on July 24th, ET actually lost -4.06% on the following trading day.

Although Energy Transfer is experiencing a short-term uptrend, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bearish.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 6.69 where further buy stops could get activated. Selling might accelerate should prices move below the nearby swing low at 6.24 where further sell stops could get triggered.
