Quepasa has been sliding steadily downward for most of the past year, but in May it apparently reached bottom and has started moving up again. Perhaps the reversal was triggered by company news around May 23rd regarding management changes and financial restatements not affecting bottom line.

  • Price momentum (PPO) — rising sharply
  • Relative strength (RSI) — steady strengthening
  • Trend (ADX) — strong, with sharp increase in buying pressure (+DI)
  • Volume — quite lightly traded, but increasing gradually

loss Bottom line

¿Que pasa? Nada, nada. Quepasa just wasn't going anywhere, and volume had trickled off to frighteningly few shares changing hands. I decided to bail out of this position and put the money into a more promising stock (RNOW).
