Even in light of this news, HRVSF has had a rough past week of trading action, with shares sinking something like -12% in that time. That said, chart support is nearby and we may be in the process of constructing a nice setup for some movement back the other way. Furthermore, the listing has seen a growing influx of trading interest, with the stock’s recent average trading volume running 54% beyond its prior sustained average level. It pays to take note of this fact given the stock’s very limited trading float of barely over 940K shares.
