In the following analysis, we will examine the stock of the company from a chart-oriented point of view.
Review (daily chart)
Towards the end of March, the price was able to exit the sideways phase, which had persisted since January, in the trend direction with considerable strength, and most recently, a confirmed downward trend has established itself. The stock just corrected around the 50%, making it a potential short candidate with speculation on the continuation of the downward trend as soon as corresponding entry signals form.
Outlook (hourly chart)
In the hourly chart, we can see the correction that is currently in motion, which has yet to develop in our preferred trading direction. For a short entry, we 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 more convenient stop, one can also practise trading from out of the correction or the formation of a reversal candle at a prominent point.
The targets are located in the areas around $83.00 and $78.50 (see green zones in daily chart), which makes the stock even more attractive for short entries. If the price exceeds the last significant high at $95.00 by a lot, we should refrain from pursuing the short scenario for the moment (daily chart depicted in red).
Before trading, one should take news in the environment and from the company into account. Similarly, one should observe the development of the overall market.
