The major cash outflow from the company’s operating activities was due to the payments which were made to the suppliers and the employees worth $3,321,259. However, there were also cash inflows in the form of interest which were received, government grants and receipts from the customer which resulted to net operating cash outflow of $ 3,097,397.

On 11 October 2018, the MACD line has cut the signal line from the top and has moved in the downward direction.

We may expect that within a couple of days the MACD line will cut the signal line from below and price may go bullish.
