Today's Range: $3.04-$3.2252-Week Range: $2.20-$7.23 Volume: 150,000 Three-Month Average Volume: 532,800>>5 Stocks Poised for Breakouts From a technical perspective, MRGE is bouncing higher here right off some near-term support at $3.03 with light volume. This bounce is also coming right near its 50-day moving average of $2.92. Traders should now look for long-biased trades once MRGE triggers its next major breakout trade. That trade will hit once MRGE takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $3.25 to $3.30, and then $3.54 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 532,800 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then MRGE could re-fill a previous gap back to $4, and possibly even tag its 200-day moving average of $4.41. Traders should key off of $2.84 to $2.92 for near-term support levels.
