The price reached a peak of 28 cents back in July but has since fallen back a bit.

The most recent move up took place on declining volume, indicating the commitment to go higher in the short term may not be there just yet.

If the price continues to fall, then the levels of 22 and 19 cents may become the focus.

For Wisr to be considered bullish, the price would need to break above the level of 28 cents set back in July.
