This move has also pushed GENE into near-term breakout territory, since the stock is pushing above some overhead resistance at $3.71. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GENE once it triggers its next major breakout trade. That trade will hit once GENE manages to clear some key overhead resistance levels at $4.28 to $4.79 with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that's near or above 176,106 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then GENE will have a great chance to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance at $6.20.
