NGL Technical Analysis

NGL Chart

NGL gapped up in price on Friday to $10.69, up from the prior day’s close of $9.12, which is a 17% increase on favorable news. Taking a look at the daily chart, we can see the last time NGL traded above this price level was on January 4th when it traded at $10.76. Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that NGL has been on an overall decline dating back to June 19th when it traded at $33.63, ultimately reaching its 52 week low price of $8.04 on December 21st, equivalent to a 76% drop in price. Since then NGL has slowly started to rebound in price. As of late Friday afternoon trading in NGL is up over 63% at $14.86. NGL has a float of 62.23 million shares and is trading over 6 times the normal daily trading volume. Right now I think the move up is a little overextended and I would like to see the stock’s reaction at $15. If it can close above $15 that would be a good sign that this rally can continue. However I expect the stock to fade a bit as traders will be looking to take profits into the weekend.
