Today's Volume: 271,000Average Volume: 287,162 Volume % Change: 90% From a technical perspective, EGL is bouncing modestly higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $18.08 with decent volume. This move is quickly pushing EGL within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once EGL manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $20 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in EGL as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $18.08, and then once it sustains a move or close above $20 with volume that hits near or above 287,162 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then EGL will setup to re-test or possibly take out its all-time high at $22.50.
