This move is coming off of some near-term support at around $1.60, and it's pushing the stock within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade . That trade will hit once ES takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $1.87 with high-volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades once ES sustains a move or close over $1.87 with volume that's near or above 1,855,060 shares. If we get that action soon, then ES could easily bounce back towards its 50-day moving average of $2.47. Keep in mind there's very little overhead resistance from $1.87 to $2.47, since this stock gapped down and plunged through those levels in early June.
