FuelCell Energy Looking Strong

The rally in FuelCell Energy will likely continue.

Security:   FCEL
Position:   Hold

I last time I touched on FuelCell Energy (FCEL) was back in August. At that time the stock was stuck in a falling channel formation, as illustrated by the black pitchfork configuration. In addition, FuelCell was showing bullish divergences on the daily chart, which were indicative of a forthcoming bottom reversal. As you can see, the stock broke out of the black pitchfork configuration in mid-August, at which point the short-term trend turned positive, confirming the bottom reversal theory.

Since bottoming out, FuelCell has continued to move higher along its rising 10-day moving average. The question now is, where does the stock go from here? Looking at the six-month chart, the $12.00 level is an attainable price target in the short-term. This is the site of the purple median line. Since median lines tend to act as significant reversal points, there appears to be more room to run.

FuelCell has also been trading in the upper half of the blue pitchfork since late August. Because the stock has yet to test the top parallel line, this could be a near-term upside objective. Not coincidentally, this pitchfork line comes into play around the $12.00 level. Also coming into play is the 38.2 percent retracement ($12.18) from the April-August decline. Given the additional upside potential in the near-term, I would continue to hold shares of FuelCell Energy. If you are looking to go long, the $10.00 level - the site of the blue median line and the stock's 20-day moving average - appears to be solid short-term support.
