AMC Entertainment (AMC) is trading higher early Wednesday following a report that it is close to reaching a deal that would help avoid a near-term bankruptcy. The share price has suffered since early 2017 so I am skeptical that fresh financing can reverse the downtrend in a meaningful way.
Let's check out the charts.
In the daily bar chart of AMC, below, we can see that the shares have been in a downtrend from August and did not find buying interest or support until the $2 area in March and April. Prices made a big percentage rebound into June but failed at the underside of the declining 200-day moving average line.
The On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line rebounded sharply into early May but has since rolled over and declined, telling us that aggressive buying came and went. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) oscillator crossed to a buy signal in early May but it has since crossed below the zero line for a new sell signal.
