The stockis at the upper part of a very wide and horizontal trend and normally this may pose a good selling opportunity but a break-up through the top trend line at $33.60 will give a strong buy signal and a trend shift could be expected.Given the current horizontal trend, you can expect Plug Power stock with a 90% probability to be traded between $24.36 and $34.05 at the end of this 3-month period. A break of a horizontal trend is often followed by a large increase in the volume, and stocks seldom manage to go directly from the bottom of a trend up to the top. Stocks turning up in the middle of a horizontal trend are therefore considered to be potential runners.
The Plug Power stock holds buy signals from both short and long-term moving averages giving a positive forecast for the stock. Also, there is a general buy signal from the relation between the two signals where the short-term average is above the long-term average. On corrections down, there will be some support from the lines at $28.67 and $26.46. A breakdown below any of these levels will issue sell signals. Furthermore, there is a buy signal from the 3 month Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD). Some negative signals were issued as well, and these may have some influence on the near short-term development. A sell signal was issued from a pivot top point on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, and so far it has fallen -5.30%. Further fall is indicated until a new bottom pivot has been found. Volume fell together with the price during the last trading day and this reduces the overall risk as volume should follow the price movements.
