Take a look at the 6 month chart of NRG (NYSE: NRG) below with added notations:
NRG had been in a consistent downtrend up until the beginning of
December. After that decline, the stock started trading sideways over
the most recent two months. While in that sideways move, the stock has
formed a common pattern known as a rectangle. A minimum of (2)
successful tests of the support and (2) successful tests of the
resistance will give you the pattern.
The NRG rectangle pattern has formed a resistance at $12 , and a
$9 support . At some point the stock will have to break one of
the two levels.
The Tale of the Tape: NRG is trading within a
rectangle pattern. The possible long positions on the stock would be
either on a pullback to $9 or on a breakout above $12. The ideal short
opportunity would be on a break below $9.
