Last % Change: (1.41%) Edge: +0.5% RSI(2): 10.51

Days Down: 2 in a row New Lows: 5-day: yes 2-week: yes

Notes: Trading in a narrowing range since late February, Lions Gate Entertainment has begun to move toward the lower end of the consolidation, finishing in the red for a second consecutive session on Thursday. Any additional selling on Friday almost certainly will return LGF to technically oversold levels.

On Friday, Lions Gate Entertainment (NYSE: LGF) traded lower, closing in oversold territory and signalling to short-term traders and active investors that the stock had retreated to levels where, historically and statistically speaking, traders have been more inclined to buy than sell.

Monday morning, shares of LGF gapped higher by nearly 3%. By the end of the day, Lion’s Gate Entertainment had gained more than seven and a half percent. LGF gained another 4% on Tuesday and , in the first few minutes of trading Wednesday morning, shares of Lion’s Gate are already up another 4%.
