Look for PTIE to sustain a move or close over those levels with volume that's near or above 173,002 shares. If we get that action soon, then PTIE could easily re-test its 2012 high of $4.53, or its next significant overhead resistance level at $4.84. Keep in mind, that PTIE will need to sustain a trend above its 200-day at $4.07 with strong volume, to give it a chance at making that larger move.
