This move has briefly pushed FOLD into breakout territory, since the stock has flirted with some near-term overhead resistance at $5.74. At last check, FOLD has hit an intraday high of $6.15 but it has subsequently pulled back to around $5.60. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in FOLD as long as its trending above $5.74 to today's high of $6.15 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above 241,632 shares as bullish. If FOLD can maintain that trend, then look for this stock to re-test or possibly take out its next significant overhead resistance levels at $6.89 to $7.29, and possibly $8 to $8.12 in the near future.
