From a technical perspective, JRCC is bouncing to the upside here right off some near-term support at $3 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing JRCC within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once JRCC manages to clear some near-term overhead resistance at $3.56 to $3.85, and then its 200-day at $4.22 and more past resistance at $4.35 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in JRCC once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.55 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then JRCC will have a great chance of re-testing or possibly taking out its next major overhead resistance levels at $5 to $6.25.
