>>5 Stocks With Big Insider Buying
Market players should now look for long-biased trades in ZGNX if this stock can manage to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $2.54 to $2.60 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that tracks in close to or above its three-month average action of 355,103 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then ZGNX will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2.90 to $3.04 a share. Any high-volume move above $3.04 will setup ZGNX to possibly hit $4 to $5 a share.
One can look to buy ZGNX off any weakness and anticipate that breakout, and simply use a stop around its 50-day moving average of $2.25 a share. One could also buy off strength once ZGNX clears $2.54 to $2.60 with heavy upside volume, and then simply use a stop at around $2.40 to $2.30 a share. I would add to either position once ZGNX takes out $3.04 with strong volume.
