ALRM Technical Analysis
ALRM opened trading yesterday at $30.36 which was up from the previous day’s trading close of $30.29. ALRM closed trading yesterday at $30.63 and spiked down after market to $33.50, equivalent to a 9% increase from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see that we are in unchartered territory as with the spike up ALRM is now trading at all time highs.
Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike up ALRM had already been in an overall upward trend dating back to February 8th when it traded at $27.14. ALRM has a float of 15.66 million shares and traded 1.78 times the normal daily trading volume on Wednesday.
For trading purposes, I would like to see ALRM open trading on Thursday above $32.50 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.25 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
