Up until the time the APHA stock hit levels beyond the current one, bulls should have no alarm. In terms of its momentum, the stock’s RSI hit 56.61 on the daily chart, and this may be a cause for concern. In case the price goes below $4.84 level on closing basis, there may be more profit booking with the stock growing weaker. Still, getting to the $5.46 level may cause a pull-back move approaching $5.68 mark.
