BTU Heats Up
Everyone knows that the coal sector has been extremely weak as of late. There is one leading coal stock that is catching a bid higher today and it is Peabody Energy Corp ( BTU). Today, BTU stock is trading higher by $1.01 to $31.21 a share.
The stock will have intra-day resistance around the $31.60 area. The daily chart could have some more upside in the near term, however, the stock remains well below the important 200 day moving average which puts the stock in a weak technical position.
Some other leading coal stocks that are trading higher today include Alpha Natural Resources, Inc. ( ANR), Arch Coal Inc ( ACI) and James River Coal Company ( JRCC). Please note that the entire coal sector still remains weak on the daily charts.
