Looking at the chart below, the stock is still pretty much in a downtrend with no buy signal in sight for position traders. Price and momentum oscillators are still denoting a bearish undertone for the stock. Though the stock is down for the count it is still not yet oversold and may experience further downside if the support at 20 does not hold. If the support at 20 fails to hold, there stock could further drop to 18.45 over the short term.
However if the stock somehow, stays above both 20 and 21, the next short term target price could be pegged at 22 to 23.
