Investors are yet to buy into Global Blockchain Technologies Corp (CNSX:BLOC) management defense as to why the stock has continued to underperform. The stock’s outlook in the market is not looking good as short sellers threaten to push it to new lows.
Global Blockchain Price Action
The stock has lost nearly 60% in market value since the start of the year, an underperformance that also seems to be giving the management team sleepless night. The team has sought to shield itself from the underperformance by attributing it to a sell-off wave that has gripped the greater cryptocurrency space.
However, it appears investors are not ready to buy into the defense if recent price action activity is anything to go by. The stock is currently trading in a steep downtrend. A breach of the $0.18 support level in recent trading sessions raises questions as to whether the stock has what it takes to bounce back.
If price action activity is anything to go by, then the stock looks set to continue trading lower as the sell-off wave continues to gain momentum. Any bounce backs should face strong resistance at the $0.18 mark, above which buyers could assume control.
