CERN Technical Analysis

CERN opened trading yesterday at $48.20 which was down from the previous day's trading close of $48.21. Shares closed trading yesterday at $48.01 and spiked up after market to $50.85, equivalent to a 6% increase from the closing price. Taking a look at the daily chart we can see that the last time CERN traded above these levels we have to go back to November 28th when it traded at highs of $50.87. Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike up CERN had been in an overall downward trend dating back to August 8th when it traded at $67.33. CERN has a float of 301.13 million shares and traded 1.30 times the normal daily trading volume on Wednesday. For trading purposes, I would like to see CERN open trading on Thursday above $50.00 and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop loss would be $0.25 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
