This stock has been uptrending strong since it hit its IPO low of $6.68 a share last November. After marking that low, the stock has soared to its IPO high in February at $11.18 a share. After a brief pullback of that high, the stock is now trading within range of breaking out and challenging that high. If you're bullish on GNE, then I would look for long biased trades once this stock breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance at $10.50, and then above its all-time high of $11.18 a share with high-volume. Look for volume on any move above those levels that's near or well above its three-month average action of 86,080 shares. If we get that action soon, then look for GNE to spike significantly higher since it will have cleared all of its overhead resistance levels. Follow @stockpickr
