Another breakdown follows the next month as the price eliminated $10 support level.
SOFI stock saw a price breakout during the beginning of August 2022 as it surpassed $7.5 resistance level. The price surged the last month where it traded above $6, the value has since held its position in an active sellers zone. A price slid followed after another breakout in Mid-November 2022. Current position shows that the value is about to enter the active buyers zone that can potentially boost the company shares.
The company may take advantage of Joe Biden administration’s student debt proposal if passed. The Supreme Court is yet to deliver the final decision regarding the case. CNBC reported that SC has agreed to hear the second case filing in February 2023 alongside the first. Judge Pittman previously sided with the Job Creators Network Foundation whose members called the President’s proposal irrational, arbitrary and unfair.
If passed, the government will help set off the student debt, which translates to a possible boost in SOFI stock value. But the investors must not keep their hopes up as the case is due for hearing in February next year.
