Today's Range: $5.66-$6.0552-Week Range: $2.29-$6.08 Volume: 2.4 million Three-Month Average Volume: 1.5 million >>5 Stocks Setting Up to Break Out From a technical perspective, CHRS is ripping higher today on monster volume right above its 50-day moving average of $5.48. This strong uptrend has now pushed CHRS within range of triggering a major near-term breakout. That breakout will hit once CHRS takes out some near-term overhead resistance at 6.05 to $6.08 with volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades if CHRS can sustain a move and close above those levels on volume that's near or well above 1,504,560 shares. If we get that action soon, then look for CHRS to re-test its next significant overhead resistance levels at $6.32 to $6.91 in the near future. Charming Shoppes was also one of my earnings short-squeeze plays this week.
