Kinder Morgan Stock (KMI): Is A Rally Brewing?

James Bartelloni

A couple weeks back, I wrote a post over on my site Bart’s Charts looking at Kinder Morgan stock (KMI) and some potential downside price targets. The stock has been a mess but I was curious to see how much lower it might go (according to math and geometry).

Remember, I’m a pattern recognition trader, so I don’t tend to know much at all about the fundamentals of a company or asset.

Long story short, I identified 14.21 as a potential downside price target for shares of Kinder Morgan.

And a couple weeks later the low is 14.22.  This was hit yesterday and the stock has bounced a bit from there. If this bottom holds for a while, it may lead to a strong rally for Kinder Morgan stock. Or at a minimum, it will present a decent trading setup with a defined risk level (i.e. stop).

If the pattern holds, then I’ll be looking for a corrective rally higher comprised of 3 waves up.

Here’s the chart that I shared in that prior post:

And now here’s the chart showing the low hit yesterday and subsequent reversal and rally higher. The key question now is: Will the reversal stick… and can a tradable rally of substance develop for Kinder Morgan stock?

Funny how that works?  I really have little idea about the fundamentals of the company (and have no interest to know)… but I do know price patterns. This one appears to be working, but time will tell.  At a minimum, price respected this level to a “T” yesterday.  Some patterns work, while others fail so remember to always use a stop when trading.

Thanks for reading.
