TTOO stock price forecastCopy link to section
In my last article on T2 Biosystems, I warned that the shares would continue falling since the company faces more headwinds than tailwinds. Sadly, I see no major catalyst for the stock since it faces huge challenges in this high-interest rate environment.
The stock’s volatility has dried and is consolidating at the 25-day and 50-day moving averages. Also, the Average True Range (ATR) has crashed hard. Therefore, I suspect that the stock will continue falling in the near term as demand dries up, This drop could see it move below the support at $2.
