Can somebody comment on my technical analysis for this?

As of today's (March 14 2012) daily chart, this is what I see...

- The chart tested the 0.880 or 0.877 support. It bounced and is on its way up.
- The MA50 looks like it's about ready to start moving up.
- There's a small gap at around $1 that it will fill.
- RSI is at 39 and pointing up.

- PAR SAR needs to be broken?
- Not much activity in volume?

So is my following conclusion correct?: This is a good buy for a small quick profit. Don't expect a huge profit. Minimum target price for this is around $1.

I hope my TA is somewhat correct  ???

I think $1.00 will be tough to break.  The previous tops .95/.96, ma50 at 1.00, 1.00 bottom in August, and $1.05 Bottom in March '09.  I think it will need a large volume increase to break through.

I think 25% is possible, just a quick trade.
Bought some at 0,92

That's pretty decent T/A Idra.  Only thing I see as inaccurate, is the gap.  The gap you're referring to on February 16th was filled 2 days later.

It is trying to rebound, after a long down trend. On my watch list.
