This move has pushed the stock into breakout territory, since shares have moved above some near-term overhead resistance at $1.94. Traders should continue to look for long-biased trades as long as the stock is trending above $1.94, and once it triggers its next major breakout. That major breakout will hit once TGX takes out some past overhead resistance at $2.29 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above $2.29 with volume that's near or above 35,697 shares. If we get that action soon, then TGX could hit $3 in the near future. On the flipside, I would avoid any long grades if TGX trades back below $1.94 with high-volume.
