Multiple Bottoming Tails in the Buy Zone

Trading Strategy: Buy Setup (BS - at least 2 days down), Bottoming Tails (BT), and Bullish Changing of the Guard (+COG), in the Buy Zone (BZ - area between rising 20MA and 40MA, where 20MA is above 40MA). CEG is in a powerful Stage 2 on the daily chart, as shown by the series of higher highs (HH) and higher lows (HL). It has sold off for four days, before the bulls took over control as shown by the +COG. Also interesting are the three BT were all in the same general area, showing demand underneath. Although not shown, the hourly chart closed with a bullish bar on increased volume (+Vol.), a bullish sign. Finally, the BS and BT occurred in between the rising 20MA and 40MA (BZ), where strong snap-backs often happen.
