Entergy Corporation engages in the electric power production and retail electric distribution operations in the United States. It operates in two segments, Utility and Entergy Wholesale Commodities. The Utility segment generates, transmits, distributes, and sells electric power in portions of Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas, and Louisiana, including the City of New Orleans; and distributes natural gas.

Take a look at the 1-year chart of Entergy (NYSE: ETR) below with my added notations:
ETR has been trending lower for the past 8 months. Over that time,
the stock has formed an important trend line of resistance (blue). Any
(2) points can start a trend line, but it’s the 3rd test and beyond that
confirm its importance. ETR obviously has an important trendline of
resistance, which currently sits right around $70. A break above that
line should mean higher prices, overall, for the stock.
The Tale of the Tape: ETR is currently stuck under a
down trending resistance. A break above that resistance should mean
higher prices for the stock, thus a long trade could be made. Short
traders might look to enter a trade at the resistance.
