After trading as low as 4.22 during the day, the share bounced off the key support level at 4.37. The failure to close below the support might increase that levels importance as support going forward. Prices are trading close to the key resistance level at 4.63.

Buying might speed up should prices move above the close-by swing high at 4.66 where further buy stops could get activated.
