Today's Range: $5.25-$5.5052-Week Range: $3.96-$11.56 Volume: 3.6 million Three-Month Average Volume: 6.9 million The airline sector is catching a bid today after Delta Air Lines (DAL) updated its guidance ahead of an investor meeting. The airline said it expects to earn $800 million in fiscal 2011. From a technical standpoint, LCC has started to move back above its 50-day moving average of $5.26 on decent volume. Market players should now watch for the next upside trade to trigger if LCC can manage to breakout above some near-term overhead resistance levels. Watch for a move above $5.81 and then $6.08 on high volume to trigger more upside for LCC. Watch for volume that registers near or above 6.9 million shares if those levels get taken out in the near future.
