ALRM Technical Analysis


ALRM gapped up in price yesterday to $16.99, up from the prior day’s close of $14.57, which is a 17% increase on the favorable news. Taking a look at the daily chart, we can see the last time ALRM traded above this price level was on August 31st, when it closed at $17.02. Over the past month and a half ALRM has been rebounding off of lows of $11.15 reached on September 29th. The first real significant resistance level would be $18.85, which was reached twice on July 20th and August 5th forming a double top.  ALRM has a low float of 7.99 million shares and was trading  3 times the normal daily trading volume. Both of these factors make the stock a prime candidate for the gap and go strategy. For trading purposes, my entry point would have been $17 looking for a run through $17.50. My stop loss would have been $16.85, fearing anything below that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
