Tobyas132,

Some of the basics you can mention is where in relation to the 50-day and 200 day moving average the stock price is. I see it is well above the 200-day moving average and it looks like it just turned north of the 50-day moving average which shows some momentum.

You could also look a trading volume – whether it is above or below average.

I am not much for analyzing charts either but Quillnpenn seems to be. There is an art to reading charts.
