This stock recently found some big buying support at around $24.85 to $26 a share. Now this stock has started to trigger a major breakout with shares moving above some near-term overhead resistance at $28.60 a share. That breakout pushed the stock into levels not seen since last August. If you're bullish on NYX, then I would look for long biased trades as long as this stock is trending above $28.60 a share, and the upside volume is tracking in strong. One could even be a buyer once the next major breakout is triggered on a high-volume move over some near-term overhead resistance at $29.69. Look for a volume on a move above that level that registers near or well above its three-month average action of 2,806,230 shares. Follow @stockpickr
