This move has pushed LPR above some near-term overhead resistance at $1.54, and it's now flirting with its 50-day moving average of $1.76.

I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 861,136 shares as bullish. If LPR can maintain its trend above $1.76, then this stock has an excellent chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2 to $2.40.
