Traders should now look for long-biased trades in JCOM as long as it's trending above some near-term support at $29, and then once it sustains a move or close above $31.07 with volume that hits near or above 332,848 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then JCOM will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $33 to $33.37. Any move above $33.37 will push JCOM into new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action.
