This move is following a recent gap down in price for AFFX that took the stock from around $4.50 to $3.45 with heavy volume. Traders should now look to play the next major breakout trade for AFFX. That trade will hit once AFFX takes out its gap down day high at $3.74, and then its 50-day moving average at $3.93 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AFFX once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 980,937 shares.
