The stock confirmed a strong breakout in December 2023 with a wedge pattern breakout. This led to a large gap up and then a successful retest on the pullback. Now, the stock must confirm its first higher low to establish a new uptrend. This currently requires a close above the $0.275 zone.

Interim support at $0.225 has been broken leading to the possible retest of support at $0.195 which would also be another retest of the gap. Gaps tend to be supportive but if it fills, then a major shift has occurred. To get momentum going forward again, watch for a close back above the $0.225 zone.
