Unable to break through the key technical resistance level at 10.07 (R1), the stock closed below it after spiking up to 10.07 earlier during the day. The failure to close above the resistance might increase that levels significance going forward.

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high at 10.11 where further buy stops might get triggered.
