Today's Range: $2.11-$2.2652-Week Range: $1.15-$2.74 Volume: 18,000 Three-Month Average Volume: 25,539 From a technical perspective, TTHI is trending higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $2.15 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing TTHI within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once TTHI takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $2.27 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in TTHI as long as its trending above its 50-day, and then once it sustains a move or close above $2.27 with volume that's near or above 25,539 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then TTHI will have an excellent chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2.60 to $2.74. Keep in mind that TTHI would trigger a major breakout if it were to clear $2.74 to $2.79 with high volume. That would push the stock into new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action.
