National Grid Transco PLC Stock Analysis

Technical stock analysis for Fri 21'st Apr 2017

Buy candidate since 2017-04-21

National Grid Transco PLC gained 0.91% in the last trading day, rising from USD 63.60 to USD 64.18 The price has risen in 5 of the last 10 days and is up by 0.9% over the past 2 weeks. Volume fell in the last day by -252 948 shares, and in total, 367 430 shares bought and sold for approximately USD 23.58 million. You should take into consideration that a falling volume on higher prices causes divergence and may be an early warning about possible changes for the next couple of days.


National Grid Transco PLC lies in the middle of a narrow and strong rising trend in the short term and a further rise within the trend is signaled. Given the current short-term trend, the stock is expected to rise 11.9% during the next 3 months and, with 90% probability hold a price between USD 70.50 and USD 73.32 at the end of this period.


Only positive signals in the chart today. National Grid Transco PLC holds a sales signal from the short-term moving average; at the same time, however, there is a buy signal from the long-term average. Since the short-term average is above the long-term average there is a general buy signal in the stock. On further gains, the stock will meet resistance from the short-term moving average at approximately USD 64.52. On a fall, the stock will find some support from the long-term average at approximately USD 62.56. A break-up through the short-term average will send a buy signal, whereas a breakdown through the long-term average will send a sales signal. A buy signal was issued from a pivot bottom point on Thursday April 20, 2017, which indicates further gains until a new top pivot has been found. Volume fell during the last trading day despite gaining prices. This causes a divergence between volume and price and may be an early warning. The stock should be watched closely.

The stock had a Golden Star Signal* on Monday February 06, 2017 in the short-term chart.

* Golden Star Signal* is when the short-term moving average, the long-term moving average, and priceline meet in a special combination. This combination is very rare and often followed by long and strong gains for the stock in question.

Support & Resistance

National Grid Transco PLC finds support from accumulated volume at USD 63.12, USD 62.75, and USD 57.87. On the upside the stock meets some resistance just above today's level from accumulated volume at USD 65.11, USD 64.28 and USD 64.71.

The stock is about to test the resistance from accumulated volume at USD 65.11 and this may cause the stock to take a minor break or get into a more sideways move for a few days.


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 USD 0.37 (0.58%) between high and low. For the last week, the stock has had a daily average volatility of 0.85%.

Our recommended stoploss: USD 60.89 (-5.13%) (This stock has low daily movements and this gives low risk. There is a buy signal from pivot bottom found 1 days ago.)


Several short-term signals, along with a general good trend, are positive and we conclude that the current level may hold a buying opportunity as there is a fair chance for this stock to perform well in the short-term. We have upgraded our recommendation for this stock since last evaluation from a Hold/Accumulate to a Buy Candidate.
