This move is quickly pushing SPRD within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once SPRD takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $18.32, and then its 200-day moving average of $18.55 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades if SPRD can sustain a move or close above $18.32 to $18.55 with volume that's near or above 1,276,010 shares. If we get that action today or soon, then look for SPRD to continue its uptrend toward its next significant overhead resistance levels at $21.16 to $21.37, or possibly back toward $23.05.
