Will NRG Energy’s Surge Calm Down Anytime Soon?
NRG Energy (NRG) stock still looks strong. Its chart indicators are suggesting a further upside in the short term since it’s trading at a huge premium to its moving averages. On March 21, 2017, NRG stock was trading 9.0% and 34.0% above its 50-day and 200-day moving averages (or DMA), respectively.
