What does the chart look like?

I find it helpful to bring up a chart. Here’s the daily chart of PXS.


Source: STEX
Almost a month ago the share price gapped up on news of the company completing its restructure program and announcing a new focus on partnering to de-risk projects and generate increased revenues.
Since then the gap has not been filled and the stock has been trading in a very narrow range. A strong break either way will tell us if the new focus on partnering is successful.

Are PXS shares a buy?

Well you could let the market tell you that. So far it is trading in a very narrow range. While the gap up does not fill, one could keep an eye on PXS just to see how things progress.
You just need a little charting knowledge to know how to proceed. You can get that chart reading knowledge here. You remain at a substantial investment disadvantage without it.
