EastGroup Properties, Inc. (EGP – Free Report) has had some recent difficulties, but commercial pressure may soon come to an end. Indeed, EGP has recently seen a hammer chart pattern that may indicate that the stock is close to the bottom.

What is a Hammer Chart pattern?

A hammer chart model is a popular technical indicator used in candlestick mapping. The hammer appears when a title collapses during the day, but then finds the force needed at any given time of the session to close near or above its opening price. This forms a hammer-like candlestick, and this may suggest that the market has found a low point in the stock and that better days are coming.

Other factors
