Traders should now look for long-biased trades in MPC as long as it's trending above that breakout level of $56.48 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 3 million shares as bullish. If MPC can maintain that trend, then this stock has a great chance of trading north of $60 in the near future.
