3) Technical Analysis

Screen Shot 2017-08-03 at 5.32.26 pm.jpg

Price action on the weekly chart showed that the stock is in a bearish downtrend, with recent short-term bull run being unable to break key price level. The stock highest price was $0.92 in 2014 and has since been making lower lows. This might be due to the geopolitical change in purchasing behaviour among consumers. A live market order would result in a 1:0.72 RR.

4) Would I be vested into the company?

Yes & No! The stock fundamentals tends to show that the company is under a good management ; ability to sustain growth in different aspect and to keep gearing ratio low when times are hard for brick n mortar while making money. Being a strong believer in price, it puts me in a tight position for a buy order now. Ill definitely be back for u:)
