Besides having an excellent technical rating, FE also presents a decent setup pattern. Prices have been consolidating lately. There is a resistance zone just above the current price starting at 41.27. Right above this resistance zone may be a good entry point. There is a support zone below the current price at 40.74, a Stop Loss order could be placed below this zone. Very recently a Pocket Pivot signal was observed. This is another positive sign.
