The company's shares have become stable after a prolonged fall. The current technical pattern signals a possible correction of #GE quotes. A classic reversal formation, the divergence of price and MACD histogram, has been formed in the issuer. At the moment, the trading instrument is testing the local resistance of 6.50. Indicators signal the power of buyers:

  • - The price has crossed 50 MA;
  • - The MACD histogram is located near the 0 mark.

We recommend opening positions from key levels.

If the price fixes above 6.50, the company’s shares are expected to recover. The nearest goal for profit-taking is 7.40-8.20. The movement is tending to the 50.0%-61.8% correctional zone. When following positions, we recommend using a trailing stop.

An alternative could be a decrease in #GE quotes to the zone of 5.00-4.00.
