An under-$10 name in the discount deals complex that's trading very close to triggering a near-term breakout trade is Groupon (GRPN), a local e-commerce marketplace company that connects merchants to consumers by offering goods and services at a discount. This stock has been annihilated by the sellers so far in 2012, with shares down by over 75%.
If you take a look at the chart for Groupon, you'll notice that this stock has been downtrending badly for the last six months, with shares plunging from over $16 a share to its recent low of $4. During that downtrend, shares of GRPN have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, GRPN have now entered oversold territory since its current relative strength index reading is below 30. This stock has also started to find some buying interest near $4 a share. It's possible that a near-term bottom could be in, and GRPN is now setting up to rebound off of oversold territory.
