This move is now pushing AEGN within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will trigger once AEGN takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $18.94 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AEGN as long as its trending above its 50-day, and once it sustains a move or close above $18.94 with high volume. Look for volume on that move that's near or above its three-month average action of 180,169 shares. If we get that action soon, then look for AEGN to re-test and possibly take out its 2012 high of $20.25.
