Pacific Ventures Group Inc (OTCMKTS:PACV) is showing signs of bouncing after hitting all-time lows.

OTCMKTS:PACV Price Analysis
An aggressive commercialization drive of the company’s SnoBar product line is another development that continues to excite the market, consequently fuelling the stock’s upward momentum. Management reaffirming commitment to implementing a business model focused on strategic acquisitions in the wholesale food, beverage and alcohol industry also continues to strengthen the stock’s market sentiments.
After a harrowing plunge in the first half of the year, Pacific Ventures needs to take out the $0.01 resistance level, to reaffirm the emerging uptrend. The stock finding support above the $0.01 resistance level should pave the way for the stock to make a run for the $0.02 mark, another crucial technical level.
Below the $0.02 level, the stock remains susceptible to further drops given the underlying bearish trend and the fact that short-sellers appear to be in control.
