From a technical point of view, the stock price is supported by both its ascending 20 and 50-day moving averages with the 50-day acting as an interesting trailing stop for long positions. Another key metrics to look at for managing invalidation level on long position is the daily RSI which has been regularly bouncing off the 54% area during the past months.
