HIIQ Technical Analysis
HIIQ opened trading yesterday at $3.98 which was the same exact price of the previous days closing price. HIIQ closed trading yesterday at $4.02 and spiked up after market to $5.24, equivalent to a 30% increase from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see the last time HIIQ traded above these levels was on June 9th when it traded at $5.17. Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that HIIQ has been in a downward trend dating back to June 7th when it traded at $7.78. HIIQ has a float of 4.83 million shares and traded below the normal daily trading volume on Monday. For trading purposes, I would like to see HIIQ open trading on Tuesday above $4.85 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.20 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
