This stock has been trading range bound for the past few months, between $2 to $2.15 on the downside and $2.60 to $2.79 on the upside. This stock is quickly moving within range of challenging the upper end of its recent range. If you're bullish on PZG, then I would look for long-biased trades once this stock breaks back above its 200-day moving average of $2.59 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that's near or well above its three-month average action of about 1 million shares. It's worth mention that the last two trading sessions (both up days) have produced volume of 3.9 million and 1.98 million shares traded. If we get that move soon, then look to add to any long positions once PZG takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $2.79 to $2.83 with volume. Target a run back towards $3.06 to $3.23 a share, or possibly higher if the strong volume continues to show up and if PZG can sustain a trend above its 200-day.
