This stock has been downtrending badly for the last month and change, with shares plunging lower from its high of $5.99 to its recent low of $2.55. During that move, shares of URRE have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, shares of URRE have started to bounce off that $2.55 low and its now approaching a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if URRE manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $2.78 to $2.94 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in URRE as long as it's trending above Thursday's low of $2.66 or that key near-term support level at $2.55, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 195,055 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then URRE will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $3.27 to its 50-day moving average at $3.41. Any high-volume move above $3.41 to $3.44 will then put $3.67 to $4 into range for shares of URRE.
