Besides having an excellent technical rating, AES also presents a decent setup pattern. Prices have been consolidating lately and the volatility has been reduced. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 28.49. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 28.16, a Stop Loss order could be placed below this zone. We notice that large players showed an interest for AES in the last couple of days, which is a good sign. Very recently a Pocket Pivot signal was observed. This is another positive sign.
