Friday's trading range was $0.57 (1.33%), that's slightly below last trading month's daily average range of $0.63. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is way below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.

Prices are trading close to a key support level at 42.41. After trading as low as 42.63 during the day, the stock found support at the 20-day moving average at 42.63.

Though Alliant Energy is currently in a short-term down trend, this could just be a correction, as the medium and long term trends are both positive.

Buying might accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 43.38 where further buy stops could get triggered. Selling might speed up should prices move below the close-by swing low at 42.25 where further sell stops could get activated. With prices trading close to this year's high at 43.95, upside momentum might accelerate should the share be able to break out to new highs for the year.
