Today's Range: $0.43-$0.4652-Week Range: $0.40-$3.30 Volume: 188,000 Three-Month Average Volume: 671,617 From a technical perspective, EXM is popping higher here with light volume. This stock was crushed by the sellers off its March high of $2.29 down to its recent low of 40 cents per share. During the last month, this stock has started to form a bottoming chart pattern at around 40 cents to 41 cents per share. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in EXM as long as it holds support at 40 cents, and then once it takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at 49 cents and its 50-day moving average of 58 cents with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above 671,617 shares. If we get that action soon, then look for EXM to re-test and possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at 65 to 74 cents per share.
