Technical analysis

Sunrun stock started an uptrend last March, and grew a gorgeous 828.57%. Rising highs and lows can be seen easily on a chart and how price gave very few entry points on the breakouts. Latest low was in early September, when price bounced at $42.61. Sunrun broke out above $59.00 (its last top) on September 14. That breakout was a good buying opportunity that resulted in a 23.39% profit

RUN at All-time Highs

Today, Sunrun hit all-time highs (ATH) again at $75.25. It's the 4th time in the last 10 sessions, marking an important rally

SMAs overview

A favorite tool of many trading systems are the moving averages, that easily show trend direction. A moving average is calculated as the simple mean of the previous N periods (usually sessions). Usual time periods used for moving averages are 21 days, 50 days, 100 days and 200 days

Supports and resistances

Technical analysts use supports and resistances as a way to find price points in the stock price action that may act as barriers, containing the price of shares to move in certain direction. Supports are levels where the price may stop as it falls. This means that the price is more likely to "bounce off" this level rather than break through it. However, if the price breaks down this level, it is likely to continue declining until approaching another support level. On the other side, a resistance level is where the price tends to find a curb as it rises. In the same way, this means that the price is more likely to "rebound" at this level, and if it finally crosses this level, it will climb more easily until it hits the next resistance

Price is at highs and there are not upper resistances.

The current support levels are:

  • S1: $59.00 (-18.96% below)
  • S2: $42.61 (-41.47% below)
  • S3: $23.66 (-67.5% below)
  • Bollinger bands

    So-called Bollinger bands are a well-known technique introduced by John Bollinger. The Bollinger Bands are bands that fluctuate around a centralmoving average and vary the distance from the bottom to the top depending on market volatility. They are usually drawn by an offset of two standard deviations, above and below, from a moving average line. Bollinger himself recommends the moving average period to be 20

    When the price moves out of the band (above the upper line or below the lower line) it indicates that the stock is currently maintaining a very strong trend and therefore can correct the trend to the average. At this point, the price is above the upper band, and that should mean a possible near-term correction (at least) until it is under the band

    Relative strength index

    The relative strength index (RSI) is a technical indicator used in the analysis of financial markets. It is intended to chart the current and previous strength or weakness of a stock or market based on the closing prices of a recent trading period. Like other oscillation indicators, the RSI fluctuates in a range from 0% to 100%. J. Welles Wilder introduced the relative strength indicator in the late 1970s and since then it has been widely used by stock traders

    RSI crossed up the 70 level today, marking a value of 75. Crossing up above the level of 70 is not a bearish signal, as shares can be above the level of 70 for many weeks and may continue to rally
