If you like buying stocks cheap, TraceSafe Inc. (TSF:CSE) might pique your interest here. Tracesafe started out as a contact tracing company but has since gravitated into other areas. As we can see on its latest five-year chart, it has been brutally beaten down in a severe bear market from its high early last year at about CA$1.90, and it fleetingly approached CA$2.40 soon after its inception in 2018.
It is now believed to be basing at a cyclical low at support in the vicinity of its 2019 lows and is as low as it has ever been. Although its volume indicators remain weak, they are showing some relative strength long-term compared to the price, and although of some concern, they should improve rapidly on any upturn in the price.
Before leaving this chart, observe the recent light volume denoting lack of interest such as often precedes a reversal, and the continued improvement in the MACD indicator as downside momentum has dropped out.
The six-month chart is looking increasingly positive with the brutal bear market seemingly ending with a pronounced bull hammer early in July, whose intraday low provided support for the price this month, and it is suspected that the low of about a week ago marks the second low of a Double Bottom with the early July low.
If so, then the minor dip on Friday has presented a good point to buy near to the lows after the rather bullish “dragonfly” candle on Friday that probed the support at the lows again.
Other positive factors to observe are the steady improvement in momentum (MACD) that we looked at above, which has arrived at the zero line that by itself suggests that the stock is ready to advance, and the large gap with the falling 200-day moving average which is the measure of how oversold it still is, that opens up “snapback” potential.
Tracesafe is therefore regarded as an Attractive Speculative Play here, especially because the current low price creates the potential for large percentage gains even on a relatively modest advance from here.

Important postscript added on the morning of the 22nd at 8.45 am: the following news was released by the company at 6.30 am EDT this morning — TraceSafe Announces IoT Wearables Partnership with solutions by stc.
Solutions by stc is the most prominent IT Services Provider in Saudi Arabia, with over 25 years of experience and more than 24,000 clients in technology services across 35 cities in Saudi Arabia. In line with the Saudi Vision 2030 objectives, the Kingdom has started the implementation of the Smart City project in multiple areas across the region, which will include such developments as THE LINE.
This certainly sounds like big news that should get the stock moving, although it would have been better for us if this news had emerged sometime during the trading day today so that we could buy at the best price.
Nevertheless, the stock should rally and hold its gains, so it is worth those interested in buying it as near to the open as possible.
Tracesafe Inc. closed at CA$0.13. $0.08 on August 19, 2022.
