If you look at the chart below, you will see that the stock is still in a long term uptrend. That also means if you are a position trader, you can still currently hold on to the stock as it is still moving in its bullish path. If you are a quick trader, it’s pretty evident that the stock just bounced from the support at 2. Should the bounce continue, set your sights to take profit at 2.9. Should the stock fail to hold 2 over the next few days, it may retrace and drop to 1.8.
