I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 93,375 shares as bullish. If we continue to see that action, then AFCE should trade north of $25 in the near future. On the flipside, any high-volume move below some near-term support at $20.36 to $20.21, and then below its 50-day moving average at $19.21 would have me looking for short-biased trades.
