The Johnson City-based industrial parts manufacturing company, NN, Inc. (NASDAQ: NNBR) seems to be ready for an upmove in the near term as per its latest charts.
#1 Falling Wedge Pattern: The daily chart shows that the stock has been forming a falling wedge pattern during the past several months. This is marked in orange color lines in the daily chart. The stock is currently moving up after taking support at the bottom of this falling wedge pattern. If the stock breaks out of the top of the falling wedge pattern, it can move higher in the near-term.
#2 Oversold RSI: The daily chart shows that the RSI is currently oversold and is moving upwards. This is a bullish sign.[hana-code-insert name=’adsense-article’ /] #3 Strong Stochastics: The stochastics oscillator shows that the %K (blue) line is currently above the %D (orange) line and moving up.
This indicates a possible reversal from the current downtrend.
There is also a bullish divergence between the price and the stochastic.
While the stock made a lower low, the stochastic formed a higher low.
#4 MACD Above Signal Line: As you can see from the daily chart, the MACD line (blue color) is currently above the signal line (orange color), indicating a bullish bias.

#7 Bullish Engulfing: The weekly chart shows that the latest candlestick pattern is bullish engulfing. This is a sign of possible bullishness.
