From a technical perspective, FRO ripped higher here right above its recent low of $2.23 with decent upside volume. This stock has been downtrending badly for the last three months, with shares moving lower from its high of $4.63 to its recent low of $2.23. During that downtrend, shares of FRO have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of FRO into oversold territory, since its current relative strength index reading is 28.8. Oversold can always get more oversold, but it's also an area from which a stock can make a powerful bounce higher.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in FRO as long as it's trending above that recent low of $2.23 and then once it sustains a move or close above Thursday's intraday high of $2.44 with volume that hits near or above 985,974 shares. If that move gets underway soon, then FRO will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels near $2.75 to $3, or even its 200-day moving average at $3.28.
