Peabody Energy Corp (NYSE:BTU) stock is up 1.4% at $26.67 at last glance, on track for its fourth-straight day of gains. The equity has found a floor just above the $25 level, too, which is home to its 200-day moving average -- a trendline with historically bullish implications. 

The stock has come within one standard of that trendline five times in the past three years, according to Schaeffer's Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White, after which BTU was positive one month later every time, averaging a 15.5% gain. A similar move would push BTU back above $30.

A bout of short covering could provide tailwinds for Peabody Energy stock as well. Short interest accounts for 12.6% of the equity's available float, or 4.5 days' worth of pent-up buying power. 

Now could be a good time to weigh in on the security's next move with options. BTU is seeing attractively priced premiums at the moment, per its Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 55%, which sits in the low 5th percentile of its annual range.
