Appen: Bottom In Place

Technicals | Nov 19 2019

By Michael Gable 

In this week's report we revisit Appen ((APX)). It is a stock that has done very well for us in the past. We sold it in early August and have commented that it should drift all the way back to under $20. With some of our clients picking it up on Friday, and the nice move higher yesterday, we decided to provide an updated chart on why it is looking positive again.

After reversing from the uptrend in early August, APX continued to look weak, drifting back towards of sub-$20 target. Price action in the last week has looked bullish with the stock moving higher on good volume and taking out the October high. Yesterday's gap-up is further confirmed that a low is in place. APX now has a very good chance of moving to a new high, although it will encounter some natural resistance near $30. Buying it here and having a stop under the November low doesn't make it a good trade anymore, so any new purchases should ideally be made on any weakness with a stop closer by under yesterday's low.
