From a technical perspective, CTCT is moving to the upside here with decent volume right off some near-term support at its 50-day moving average of $18.21. This move is quickly pushing CTCT within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once CTCT takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $20.35 to $21.40 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades once CTCT sustains a move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 569,671 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then CTCT will have an excellent chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $22.78 to its 200-day moving average of $23.49. On the flipside, I would avoid CTCT or look for short-biased trades if it fails to trigger that breakout, and then moves back below some near-term support at $17.65 with high volume.
