Our first order of business this morning is to mention the performance of JMIA after we included in yesterday’s premarket report on our extended watchlist.
This relatively new play doesn’t even have an options chain as yet, but the move made by the stock itself, especially for something in this price range, was really impressive. JMIA ran from a low of 33.10 on up to 43.50 during yesterday’s session, marking an impressive intraday rise of 31% As of this morning in the premarket, that high has risen to 50.60, and pushing our observed gain to a super solid 53%
