American Electric Power Company Inc has broken the weak rising the short-term trend up and an even stronger rising rate is indicated. For any reaction back there will now be support on the roof on the current trend broken at $98.29, a level that may pose a second chance to hit a runner. According to fan-theory $106.09 will be the next possible trend-top level and thereby pose a resistance level which may not be broken at the first attempt.
Only positive signals in the chart today. American Electric Power Company Inc holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages. In addition, 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 $95.76 and $93.46. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Friday January 03, 2020, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume is rising along with the price. This is considered to be a good technical signal.
Relative Strength Index (RSI)
RSImin/max Values: [ 25 - 75 ]
The stock holds a RSI14 at 79 and is currently being overbought on RSI. This does not have to be a sales signal as many stocks may go both long and hard while being overbought on the RSI. It is therefore important to evaluate the history of the share as it may tell you something about the RSI-sensitiveness.

Support & Resistance
American Electric Power Company Inc finds support from accumulated volume at $96.60.
This stock is usually traded at a good volume, and with minor daily changes, the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $1.60 (1.65%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had daily average volatility of 1.10%.
The stock is extremely overbought on RSI14 (79). Normally this may pose a good selling opportunity but since the stock has broken the trend up, the chance for a major correction due to high RSI is very small as the stock will find support at the trend broken. Since the American Electric Power Company Inc has been rising for 8 days in a row, the risk for the next couple of days has increased. We don't expect a major reaction as the stock is in very good shape technically, and therefore hold a positive evaluation despite the very short term risk.
Our recommended stop-loss: $94.19 (-4.43%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. The RSI14 is 79 and this increases the risk substantially. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 10 days ago.)
