In our last review of Plug Power (PLUG) on Feb. 25 we recommended, "In hindsight I recommended getting out a few days too early. I can live with leaving some money on the table cause it feels good to have no position when prices are sinking rapidly. Continue to stand aside."
The shares have just made a new low for the move down so let's check the charts again.
In the updated daily bar chart of PLUG, below, we can see that prices have remained on the defensive since our late February review. The slope of the 50-day moving average line turned negative in the middle of March and the rising 200-day moving average line is likely to be tested in the days ahead.
The On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line has weakened since topping out in January/February. A declining OBV line tells us that sellers of PLUG have been more aggressive with heavier trading volume on days when the stock has closed lower.
The trend-following Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) oscillator moved to an outright sell signal in late February and is still below the zero line.
