Since then it has posted a Bearish Pattern of Lower Highs and Lower Lows.

Today (May 4) the Stock formed a Bearish Gap before shedding 8.4% to close at HK$4.26. At the same time, Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index slumped 4.2%.

In fact, the Stock has shot below the Lower Bollinger Band calling for acceleration to the downside.

With a bearish bias, the Stock would seek Downside Support at HK$4.12 (the low of 2019). Further downside could make the Stock search for support at HK$3.85.

A Bullish Reversal could only be expected if the Stock returns to the overhead Key Resistance at HK$4.62 (at least filling back today's bearish gap).
