LAST UPDATE: MAY 20
NRG is moving within a channel. Now that It has made a multiple bottom and recently broke the dynamical resistance on May 8, it is struggling with the (100) Exponential Moving average. Especially, look at the positive divergence on the Money Flow indicator and the ROC, rate of change (green line). We could expect a pullback to the support at 19.5. We could wait for the bottom on the 19.5 level to buy with stop loss at 19.
