What’s Next For AMC Entertainment?
Bullish traders are looking to see the stock move higher on above-average volume for a possible breakout-type move. Bulls are then eventually looking for a consolidation period with held gains, for a possible second leg higher.
Bearish traders would like to see the stock fall and cross back into the wedge pattern. If the stock were to cross into the wedge pattern once again, bears would then want to see it cross below pattern support. This could hint the stock is ready for a bearish move.
