The stock is up 2% at time of writing on today’s news.

The stock has been in a new uptrend beginning in February 2024. We have our first higher low confirmed at $0.225. Now, the stock is pulling back after printing higher highs. We are now contained within a flag pattern. Await for a daily candle close above the upper portion of this trendline to confirm a breakout. A close below $0.225 would nullify the upwards momentum. The price action is narrowing indicating a breakout soon.
