If you're bullish on HLSS, then I would look for long-biased trades once this stock pulls back closer to its 50-day moving average of $14.37 a share. This stock recently broke out above $15.92 a share, but it is now pulling back and is likely heading toward its 50-day, where it will offer up a better long entry.
If you don't get that pullback in HLSS, then traders should look to get long once the stock triggers a breakout above $16.15 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that hits near or above its three-month average action of 210,712 shares. Any move above $16.15 will push HLSS into all-time high territory, which is bullish technical price action
