After the infernal descent of 2015, this year has mostly been one of consolidation for GPRO . Since the all-time low of mid May 2016, it has staged an impressive rebound (c. +80%) and it seems that the rounding bottom formation of 2016 is ending successfully, in a breakout to the upside supported by good and preceded by a golden cross. Today is the 3rd day of vertical upside on significant , suggesting some sustainability to this movement.
Those tempted by further potential upside could initiate a partial position here and buy further on weakness all the way to $14.00. If the breakout is further confirmed, the upside potential from here could be substantial but given the recent outperformance, the trade should take time to unfold. Allow wide stop losses to give this trade some time.
