The gaming company is scheduled to announce earnings after the markets close on Aug. 5.
A persistent rise above $11.76 would suggest an end to the sideways pattern that has marked trading since the beginning of June. The stock has been in bull phase on the parabolic sar for 11 trading days, on the macd for 10 days, and on Person's Proprietary Signal (pps) for 12 days.
Today's upward thrust, so far covering 3.4% intraday, moved the price well above the July upper pivot on the Person's chart. However, volume has not yet shown a spike today, and in fact the peak volumes back to late june have been a series of lower highs.
|pps||pps open||upper pivot||lower pivot|
|ATVI $11.71||$10.54 jul7||$11.30||$9.56|
The price at today's high stands 11.6% above the bull phase open.

OK. The credit bubble burst. Housing, burst. Shockwaves reverberated. Markets collapsed. What lies ahead as we reemerge from the wreckage.
