SEDG Technical Analysis
SEDG opened trading yesterday at $22.30 which was exactly the same as the previous day’s trading close. SEDG closed trading yesterday at $22.85 and spiked up after market to $26.85, equivalent to a 18% increase from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see the last time SEDG traded above these levels we have to go back to May 2nd when it traded at lows of $26.79.
Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike up SEDG had already been in an overall upward trend dating back to February 6th when it traded at $12.30. SEDG has a float of 23.75 million shares and traded 1.56 times the normal daily trading volume on Wednesday.
For day trading purposes, I would like to see SEDG open trading on Thursday above $25.50 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.30 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
