This stock formed a perfect double bottom in September and October at $11.10 to $11.26 a share. Since hitting that bottom, the stock has been uptrending strong and is now nearing a big breakout. If you're bullish on EGBN, you could be a buyer off any weakness and anticipate the breakout. I would use a mental stop just below the 50-day moving average of $13.96 if you get long off weakness. You could also buy off strength and get long once EGBN breaks out above $14.94 to $15.14 with volume. Look for volume that's tracking in close to or above its three-month average action of 65,851 shares.
