Angie’s List Daily

 Taking a look at the daily chart we can see that the last time ANGI traded above these levels we have to go back to the week of December 27th, 2016 when it traded at $8.62.

Taking a closer look at the daily chart we can see that before the spike up ANGI had been in an overall downward trend dating back to December 8th, 2016 when it traded at $9.35. ANGI has a float of 45.6 million shares and traded below the normal daily trading volume on Monday.

For trading purposes, I would like to see ANGI open trading on Tuesday above $7.50 or the VWAP and if it does I would be looking to take a long position at the bell. My stop order would be $0.20 from my entry position fearing anything more than that and the stock would start to fill in the gap up.
