The stock for Aurora Cannabis sees its share of ups and downs

Over the turn of the year, something like a rebellion could be observed once again, but it collapsed relatively quickly. The loss of the important support at $2.15 (CA$2.82) (the low from November 2019) is still having an impact. After the stock for Aurora Cannabis fell below this level in December and generated a classic sell-signal, the movement initially came to a halt in the area of $1.88 (CA$2.46). The share price picked up once again to a countermovement.

However, the course of this movement once again revealed the blatant weakness of the value, as the advance did not develop any penetrating power. Instead, it quickly withdrew. As a result, the price fell below $1.88 (CA$2.46) again.

With currently $1.73 (CA$ 2.27) (at the end of 08.01,) the value is now approaching the eminently important support at $1.53 (CA$2.00). When it comes to the stock for Aurora Cannabis, counter-movements are possible at any time due to the oversold stage of the movement, but only the re-conquest of the $2.15 (CA$2.82) mark would give such a first relevance. The current situation is quite different for the comeback candidate Aixtron.
