If you're bullish on TTWO, then I would look for long-biased trades if this stock can manage to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $11.79 to $12.05 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 1,951,630 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then look for TTWO to trend up towards $14 to $16 a share. Any high-volume move above $16.99 to $17.58 a share would then put $20 into range of TTWO.
