Daily Candlestick Chart (PEG as at Aug 10, 2018):
Friday's trading range was $1.03 (1.98%), that's far above last trading month's daily average range of $0.74. Things look different on a weekly scale, where volatility is below the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.
Prices are trading close to a key support level at 51.02. Breaking below the key support level at 51.73 today, it is now likely to act as resistance going forward. After having been unable to move lower than 51.20 in the prior session, Public Serv. found buyers again around the same price level today at 51.29. After spiking up to 52.32 during the day, the market found resistance at the 50-day moving average at 52.16.
Though still in a long-term uptrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bearish already. The share broke below the 100-day moving average at 51.34 today for the first time since August 8th.
Selling might accelerate should prices move below the close-by swing low at 51.02 where further sell stops could get activated.
