Workhorse Group Daily Chart Analysis:

  • Shares have been falling the past few months in a downward channel that may also be called a falling wedge.
  • The stock is trading above the 50-day moving average (green), but below the 200-day moving average (blue), indicating the stock is likely facing a period of consolidation.
  • The 50-day moving average may hold as an area of support, while the 200-day moving average is a place where the stock may find resistance.

Key Levels To Watch:

  • Workhorse Group shares gapped higher Thursday, potentially breaking out of the falling wedge pattern.
  • The falling wedge pattern is considered a bullish reversal pattern that happens when the price is condensed and squeezed to a point while trading in a downwards trend.
