Shares of PLCE have found buying interest during the past month and change at around $44 to $43 a share. On Tuesday, this stock soared back above its 50-day moving average of $45.85 a share, and it's now trading with range of taking out its 200-day moving average of $48.97 a share. If you're in the bull camp on PLCE, then I would look for long-biased trades once this stock breaks out above its 200-day at $48.97, and then above some near-term overhead resistance at $49.76 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that registers or above its three-month average action of 562,917 shares. If we get that action soon, then PLCE has a great chance of re-testing and possibly taking out its April high of $53.60 a share. On the flipside, I would avoid PLCE or look for short-biased trades if it fails to trigger that move and then drops back below its 50-day at $45.85 a share with heavy volume. A high-volume move below its 50-day will setup PLCE to possibly take out those key near-term support zones at $44 to $43 a share.
