TRIP Technical Analysis
TRIP gapped up in price yesterday to $81.94, up from the prior day’s close of $66.69 which is a 23% increase in price based on favorable news. Taking a look at the daily chart, we can see the last time the stock traded above this price level was on July 23rd when the stock closed at $93.97. On that occasion, the stock tanked all the way to $80.86 on the next day of trading, or equivalent to a 14% drop in price. Since that big drop in price back in July the stock continued its downward trend till it hit its 52 week low of $62.24 on September 29th. As we can see, the stock is capable of making big moves in a short period of time. The stock traded on over 7.5 times the normal daily trading volume. TRIP did reach pre market highs of $84.40 but opened lower and gaving back $2.46 at the open, or, equivalent to 3%. For trading purposes, my entry point would have been $82.00 looking for a run through $83. My stop loss would have been $81.75 fearing anything below that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
