Market players should now look for long-biased trades in NLS if it can manage to trigger a breakout above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $3.04 to $3.10 a share with high-volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels on volume that's near or well above its three-month average action of 252,808 shares. On Thursday, NLS hit an intraday high of $3.10 on above average volume of 325,935 shares.
If you buy this stock off of weakness and anticipate further upside, then I would simply use a stop near the 50-day moving average of $2.66 a share. I would rather play this name off of strength though since that a breakout above $3.10 will push NLS into new 52-week high territory. Some potential targets on the upside if NLS can maintain a trend above $3.04 to $3.10 with strong upside volume flows are its next significantly overhead resistance levels at$3.45 to $3.68, and possibly even $4.40 a share.
