OHGI gapped up in price today to $1.60 up from yesterday’s close of $1.41 which is a 13% increase in price based on favorable news. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see the last time it traded above this level was last week on Aug 13 when the stock hit a high of $2.40. The last time the stock closed above $2 was on Aug 4 when it close at $2.25. Taking a further look down the daily chart we can see the stock reached a high of $5.52 back on June 11. Those highs can be attributed to the company first announcing it supports all major chinese mobile platforms for its chinese retail voip service named Aishou. Since the highs on June 11 the stock has been in freefall hitting lows of $1.29 on Aug 12. As we can see the stock has been extremely volatile in the past couple of months. The stock has a low float of 15.59 million and has shown in the past it can run up on positive news making it a candidate for the gap and go strategy. The stock hit pre-market highs of $2.05 but gave back $0.45 and opened at $1.60. This concerns me a bit as it may be overextended right now. For trading purposes I would use the $1.80 price as my entry point looking for the run to $2.00 and beyond, the $2.00 level would be a good add on price. My stop loss would be the $1.60 gap up price fearing if it falls below that price we may fill in the gap up.
