Cheniere Energy’s moving averages
Cheniere Energy (LNG) continues to trade above its both short-term (50-day) and long-term (200-day) moving averages. This trend indicates bullish sentiment in the stock. Cheniere Energy was trading 10.9% above its 50-day SMA (simple moving average) and 22.6% above its 200-day SMA as of May 10.
Strong recent quarterly earnings, increased 2018 guidance, positive updates on Train 3 at Corpus Christi, and strong global LNG prices might continue to drive positive sentiment in Cheniere Energy’s stock. On the other hand, a rise in the US Treasury yield and weakness in US equity markets could push Cheniere Energy below its 50-day moving average. However, the positives look more supportive of the company.
