El Paso Electric Company has broken the wide and falling short-term trend up. Firstly a slower falling rate is indicated, but this may very well be an early signal of a trend shift. On the reaction there will be support on the roof on the current trend broken, which is $51.44, a level that may pose a second chance to hit a runner. According to fan-theory $57.19 will be the next possible trendtop level and thereby pose a resistance level which may not be broken on the first attempt.

Only positive signals in the chart today. El Paso Electric Company holds buy signals from both short- and long-term moving averages, but the stock has a general sell signal from the relation between the two signals where the long-term average is above the short-term average. On corrections down there will be some support from the lines at $49.90 and $51.80. A break down below any of these levels will issue sell signals. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Monday January 14, 2019, 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.

Support & Resistance

El Paso Electric Company finds support from accumulated volume at $50.88.

Support: $50.88 Price: $51.99 Resistance: $52.08


This stock is usually traded at good volume, and with minor daily changes the risk is considered to be low. During the last day, the stock moved $1.81 (3.59%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 2.39%.

Since the El Paso Electric Company has been rising for 6 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 stoploss: $49.86 (-4.09%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 5 days ago.)

Overall risk:

Very Low Low Medium High Very High


Several short-term signals are positive and the break-up from the falling trend indicates a possible shift for a trend. We believe that the prices around the breaking point will indicate particularly good levels, but we also believe that the current level will hold a possible good buy level for the short-term period. We have upgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Hold/Accumulate to a Buy Candidate.
