The company General Electric (GE) has been around a very long time. You can visit their official webpage here. The company of today looks a lot different than the company of "yester-year" that I remember as a child.
I actually think their commercials are hysterical. Especially the one where the son tells his dad he is going to work for GE. His dad places a big ole' sledgehammer on the end table and tells him it was his grandfathers. The son tells his dad he is going to be a programmer and won't need the hammer. The dad calls out the son and asks "You can't pick up the hammer son, can you?"....yes a few things are lost in translation but if you have seen the commercial, you will know which one I am referring to.
Well, this article is not about the quality of the commercials that GE makes, its about the price action for its stock. So let's start reviewing some charts!
General Electric (GE) - 20 Year Chart

The price action has been very well contained by the Fibonacci Retracement Tools. GE's share price spent almost 2 years in-between the blue 50% and 61.8% Retracement Lines. GE's share price then moved up to the next quadrant. The next quadrant seems to be defined as the blue 61.8% Retracement Line and the black 50% Retracement Line. GE's share price has spent over a year and a half in this quadrant.
Typically, making a scale-in purchase of shares at the bottom of a Trading Channel is a good area. That's where GE's share price currently resides - right near the bottom of its Trading Channel.
