From a technical perspective, FB is ripping higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $20.62 with monster upside volume. This move is quickly pushing FB within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit once FB manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance at $24.25 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in FB as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $20.62, and then once it sustains a move or close above $24.25 with volume that hits near or above 53.26 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then look for FB to re-fill its previous gap down zone form August that started near $27.50.
