NYRT Technical Analysis


NYRT opened trading yesterday at $9.29 which was exactly the same as the previous days trading close. NYRT closed trading yesterday at $9.24 and spiked up after market to $10.00, equivalent to a 8% increase from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see the last time NYRT traded above these levels we have to go back to August 19th when it traded at $10.03. Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before NYRT spiked up it had been in an overall downward trend dating back to August 18th when it traded at $10.11. NYRT has a float of 163.66 million shares and traded below the normal daily trading volume on Monday. For trading purposes, I would like to see NYRT open trading on Tuesday above $9.75 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.15 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
