Daily chart for XEL

Monday's trading range was $0.88 (1.97%), that's slightly above last trading month's daily average range of $0.78. Weekly volatility is also higher, being slightly above the markets average with the monthly volatility being below average.


After trading as low as 44.50 during the day, the stock bounced off the key support level at 44.53. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward.


While still in a long-term downtrend, the short and medium-term trends both turned bullish already. The market managed to break above the 20-day moving average at 44.85 today for the first time since March 14th.

Order Flow

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the nearby swing high at 45.99 where further buy stops might get triggered. As prices are trading close to April's high at 45.99, upside momentum could speed up should XEL mark new highs for the month.


Both sentiments, the classical technical analysis and our quantitative statistics are in perfect alignment today showing a bullish sentiment for the next trading day.
