Such was famously the case with AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AMC) when the price went from $70 to $35 in just one day.
Let’s start with the weekly chart below to see if investors should buy Camber Energy amid the recent momentum.
- After the first short squeeze, CEI crashed back down to $0.91 from its highs of $3.84- an 80% fall.
- On Thursday, the RSI fell to its support and a bounce back should be seen. Moreover buying volumes are looking very strong showing that it might be heading for another breakout.
- CEI took support from its 200 day moving average on Wednesday and is still looking strong as it is able to sustain above the moving average.
- However, a small pullback could still be seen as it has almost doubled in price in just a day so before taking a long position a pullback could be waited for.
- If the momentum is seen again the stock should easily be able to achieve the target price of $2.6.
- CEI is looking very weak below the low from Wednesday of $0.91 thus that level is a crucial demand zone for CEI.
Now, let’s move on to the daily chart below.
- On Thursday CEI got rejected by the supply zone of $1.80, however, with the volumes that it is carrying it should break out very soon.
- Long positions should be avoided until a breakout over the supply zone of $1.80 is seen.
- CEI should be able to sustain the zone, only then will it be able to prove that it has a chance at a new all-time high.
CEI stock still has the potential to rise however it will have to start sustaining above the levels of $1.80 before it tries to head for a new all-time high.
A long position can be taken after the pull back from the huge move on Thursday, however, caution must be taken as CEI is extremely volatile and can halve in value in no time.
