For technical trading, ZOLT stock is currently priced at around -8.42% below the 50 day moving average, -12.22% below the 200 day moving average, -43.64% below the 52 week high of $15.01, and 51.07% above the 52 week low of $5.60. ZOLT stock has been under the influence of the bears in the stock market for the last 4 months since the share price plunged from the $15.01 high to its most recent low of $7.34.

When Zoltek’s stock price was sliding it was consistently making lower highs and lower lows, as bearish technically as you can get. Although the PPS has started to bounce back the last couple of weeks, this stock has to find some way to breakout above some near-term overhead resistance at $8.47 a share with high-volume. If it fails to trigger that breakout and drops back towards $7.34 a share with heavy volume, ZOLT could easily trade near the penny stock level at or around its 52-week low of $5.60 a share.
