This stock ran up big since the start of 2012 from $1.11 to a recent high of $1.99 a share. During that run, the stock made mostly higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That said, COMV just ran into overhead resistance near $1.95 to $1.99 a share, and it has broken back below its 200-day moving average. If you're a bull on COMV, then I would look for long-biased trades once it breaks back above its 200-day moving average of $1.82 with strong volume. Look for volume on that move that's near or well above its three-month average action of 249,760 shares. If we get that action soon, then I would add to any long positions once CMOV breaks out above $1.95 to $1.99 a share with high-volume. Target a run up to its next major overhead resistance level at $2.50 if that breakout triggers soon. I would simply avoid any long trades in COMV if the stock fails to get back above its 200-day and take out $1.95 to $1.99 a share with high-volume. If you buy this stock off weakness, then keep in mind that the nearest major support level is at $1.70 to $1.59 (its50-day) a share. Any high-volume moves below those levels should be considered very bearish in the short-term.
