From a technical perspective, IMH is gapping sharply higher here right off some near-term support at $10 with above-average volume. This move has started to push IMH into breakout and 52-week-high territory, since the stock has moved above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $11.57 to $11.94.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in IMH as long as it's trending above those breakout levels with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 163,627 shares as bullish. If IMH can maintain that trend, then this stock has a great chance of trending up towards $15 or higher in the near future.
