Today's Range: $2.47-$2.6552-Week Range: $1.96-$7.18 Volume: 1.45 million Three-Month Average Volume: 2.7 million From a technical perspective, MUX is ripping higher here on light volume. This move is coming off of some previous support at around $2.42. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in MUX if it can manage to trigger a near-term breakout with high-volume. That breakout will hit once MUX takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $2.82, and then its 50-day moving average of $3.14. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 2,731,070 shares. If we get that action soon, then MUX could trade up towards its next significant overhead resistance level at $4.05, or possibly its 20-day moving average at $4.24.
