#1 Trendline Support: As you can see from the daily chart, the stock has been on an uptrend, as it has been forming higher highs and higher lows. This trendline is marked as a blue color dotted line.

#2 Price above MA: The price is currently above its longer-term moving average of 200-day SMA. This implies that there is still a bullish bias for the stock.

#3 Bullish Stoch: The daily chart shows that the %K line of the stochastic is above the %D line, and is also moving higher from oversold levels. All these are possible bullish indications.

#4 Bullish ADX and DI: The ADX indicator shows bullishness because the (+DI) line and the ADX line are greater than (-DI), and ADX has moved up from below (-DI) and (+DI) lines.

#5 Bullish MACD: The MACD line is above the MACD signal line in the daily chart. The MACD indicator is also moving higher from oversold levels. All these indicate possible bullishness.

#6 Fibonacci Support: Usually, after an up-move, stocks retrace to any of the key Fibonacci levels before surging back again.
