New Wave Holdings, Inc (OTCMKTS: NWAV) started off 2017 with a strong upward move that took the stock to $.0295. The stock has since retraced roughly 60 percent of the move, and is holding steady at a support level of $.0070 where it is trading now. The last time we analyzed the stock on March 28, 2017, the stock seemed to be recovering from the initial retracement following the high of the upward move at the beginning of the 2017. From a technical analysis point of view, the stock’s price action is forming a descending triangle with the support level at $.0070. If the stock does not break-down through the support level, and recovers at least 50 percent of the retracement from the high of the triangle pattern, a favorable buy setup will present itself. The financials and status of the company will need to support the buy signal.
