After an excited trading session on Thursday, the stock on Friday experienced aggressive buying pressure from the investors, closing the day with gains of more than 10% on massive volume. Groupon Inc (NASDAQ:GRPN) was a stock I alerted to my readers/twitter followers on Tuesday as a bounce candidate at 4.35-4.5 a share. We have positive signal of all technical indicators. The fast stochastic is now in the overbought zone and the slow stochastic is on its way there, providing a strong bullish signal. The MACD indicator confirmed the signals of stochastics by it increasing. The RSI is also advancing sharply closing above the 50 level, showing the strength of current buying pressure. Another positive effect was the break of the resistance at $5 and we could expect the strong buying pressure will helps the the stock heading to it next level at 6-6.3. However I would to point out that this resistance zone is pretty strong, as it’s a combination of a normal resistance zone and the resistance of 50-SMA, we could expect in this area ( 6-6.30 ) the consolidation or a turning down.
