From a technical perspective, PRTS is currently trending below both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bearish. This stock has been downtrending badly for the last three months, with shares dropping from its high of $2.24 to its recent low of $1 a share. During that move, shares of PRTS have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of PRTS have started to bounce off that $1 low and are starting to move within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade.
If you're in the bull camp on PRTS, then look for long-biased as long as this stock is trending above $1.10 and then once it breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.17 to $1.28 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 63,216 shares. If that breakout triggers, then PRTS will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 50-day moving average of $1.44 to around $1.60 a share. Any high-volume move above $1.60 will then put $1.80 to $2 into range for shares of PRTS.
