This move is quickly pushing ALGN within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once ALGN takes out its 52-week high of $35.56 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ALGN as long as it's trending above its 50-day with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 1.2 million shares as bullish. If we continue to see that action, then look to add to any long positions once ALGN takes out $35.65 with heavy volume. If that breakout triggers soon, then ALGN could tag $40.
