  • MO has traded 2.6 million shares today.
  • MO traded in a range 206% of the normal price range with a price range of $1.20.
  • MO traded below its daily resistance level (quality: 213 days, meaning that the stock is crossing a resistance level set by the last 213 calendar days. The resistance price is defined by the Price - $0.01 at the time of the signal).

Stocks matching the 'Water-Logged and Getting Wetter' criteria are worthwhile stocks to watch for a variety of factors including historical back testing and volatility.

In this case, the stock crossed an important inflection point; namely, "support" while at the same time the range of the stock's movement in price is twice its normal size. This large range foreshadows a possible continuation as the stock moves lower.
