What the Charts Say

Bullish on American Electric Power Add to ...

American Electric Power Co. traded between $24 and $34 from late 2008 to 2009 and then settled into a secondary area of accumulation between $31 and $37 in 2010 to complete a bullish compound base known as a duplex horizontal (dashed lines). Recent price action suggests the stock is ready to begin a new major up-leg (A).

Technical indicators including the rising 40-week moving average and the MACD (moving average convergence-divergence, see lower panel) confirm the bullish status. Only a decline below $36.50-$37 would be negative.

Point & Figure measurements provide targets of $44 and $49. Higher targets are visible.
