Glu Mobile (GLUU) Rebounding from Critical Support

Shares of GLUU have been rallying in the past couple of weeks. This comes after sliding from a high of 4.00 in February to a low of 1.73 at the end of October. 

Mark Holder explains his optimism in this stock:

The biggest move was probably the $45.5 million all cash deal to purchase Crowdstar. The game developer had previously released the popular Covet: Fashionthat ranks as a Top 100 grossing game.

Let's take a look at the weekly chart of GLUU:

Critical support holding:
- The weekly chart shows that price came awfully close to breaking the critical support in the 1.75-2.00 area, which goes all the way back to 2010. 
- Price actually cracked the support but rebounded nicely. 
- I think its worth considering a buy-on-a-dip around 2.00. 
- If the upside is to 2.90 (about a 30% run), and the downside is 1.70 (15%), then there is essentially a 2:1 reward to risk profile. 
- I would say that upside could extend towards 3.50, which is another common support/resistance pivot area.
- The 2016-high of 4.00 is not out of the question, but is probably an aggressive target. A trade from 2.00 should probably take some profit before reaching 4.00 in case the current rally is just a "dead cat bounce", which would be followed by a bearish continuation swing that will break through the noted critical support.
