This high-volume move follows a large upside volume day from Friday that spiked the stock right off some near-term support at $8. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in BGFV as long as it's trending above $9.42 to $9.50 with strong upside volume flows. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above 89,481 shares. If BGFV can hold that trend, then this stock has a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next significant overhead resistance level at $11.24. On the flip side, I would avoid BGFV or look for short-biased trades if it fails to hold that trend, and then drops below $8.93 with high volume.
