Will NRG Energy Stock Continue Its Bull Run?

Chart indicators

NRG Energy (NRG) stock continues to trade at a huge premium to its moving average levels. The stock currently seems strong, as it is trading 17% and 27% above its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, respectively. Both these levels may now act as a support in the short term. The stock’s 50-day moving average crossed above its 200-day moving average, which can be considered a bullish sign in the short term.

We can analyze moving averages in two ways: via price crossover or via two or more moving averages. The first method suggests that when a stock’s price exceeds a particular moving average, it’s a bullish sign and vice versa. The second method tells us that when a stock’s shorter moving average crosses over its longer moving average, it’s a “buy” signal for the stock.
