I think $10 range is more likely pre earning. In my opinion the Nomura downgrade has given traders a reason to be cautious with HIMX. Unless we could get some good news I doubt we would see $11 before earning.
Today should give a clearer picture of the charts but keep in mind earning so soon throws off an accurate reading. As what I see a possible resistance to bottom at at about 9.40, however if it breaks that today we could go lower before any #'s are out. Its all about earnings at this point.Good #'s we go higher anything short of good will be a blood bath until January as the street will not be so understanding as seen in all tech lately.
To me it looks like a pullback to the 9.16 area is indicated (the top of the gap from Sept). Best long play if that happens would be the Nov 9, 11 call spread. This should be available for about 50--60 cents with a possible triple if ramp-up guidance is good.
