The following analysis will expand on the stock of the company from a chart-related point of view.

Review (daily chart)

After the price was unable to exceed the all-time high at approx. $31.50, the stock came under massive pressure. At the latest towards the end of last year, a confirmed downward trend was established, which was last reconfirmed in January. Most recently, the value found itself in a correction, and in the last trading week, took up increased movement in the trend direction once more. This indicates good chances for short entries with enormous downward potential down to the lows from 2016.


Outlook (hourly chart)

In the hourly chart, we can see the correction that is currently underway, which has yet to develop in our preferred trading direction.

For a short entry, one should wait for the formation of a signal, e.g. in the form of a P2, and place the stop loss above the last P3 (depicted in green).

Alternatively, and with the advantage of a cheaper stop, one can also practice trading from out of the correction or the formation of a reversal bar at a prominent point.

The first target is located in the area around $23.50 (see green zone in daily chart). A continuation of the trend to the next target at around $23.00 and even lower is definitely a possibility.

If the price clearly exceeds the last significant high at $28.65, the short scenario should be abandoned for the time being (see red zone in the daily chart).


Before trading, one should take news in the environment and from the company into account. Similarly, one should also observe the development of the overall market.
