Price action activity indicates Medical Marijuana Inc (OTCMKTS:MJNA) is a bounce back play, as bulls continue to take the fight to short sellers. Formation of a double bottom signals a turnaround in the direction of trade as the upward momentum continues to gather pace.
Medical Marijuana Price Analysis
The $0.07 level has emerged as a critical support level from where bulls are slowly regaining control from short sellers. In the meantime, the stock faces immediate resistance at the $0.10 level. A breach of the critical resistance level, should reaffirm the emerging uptrend that began late last year.
Above the $0.10 level, the stock should be on its way to 52-week highs of $0.17. On the downside, immediate support is at $0.07. A breach of the critical support level would give short sellers a reason to come back and continue pushing the stock lower, in continuation of the long-term downtrend.
However, if recent price action is anything to go by, then Medical Marijuana could be on its way to breaking out supported by a string of positive developments in the overall industry.
