From a technical standpoint, this stock has been stuck in a nasty downtrend for the past six months, with shares making mostly lower highs and lower lows. The stock is also currently trading well below both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bearish.

That said, traders can look to play the next major breakout that will trigger on a high-volume move above $2 and then $2.25. If we see that action soon, look for a run back towards $3.
