This move is quickly pushing MCP within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once MCP takes out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $12.54 to $13.20 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in MCP once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 5,801,000 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then MCP will have a great chance of re-filing its previous gap from early August that started above $16. On the flip side, I would avoid MCP or look for short-biased trades if it fails to trigger that breakout and then drops below some major near-term support at $10.72 with high volume.
