From a technical perspective, FIO is bouncing modestly higher here right below its 200-day moving average of $25.08 with heavy volume. This move is coming after FIO has been downtrending badly for the last two months, with shares falling from a high of $32.63 to a recent low of $21.14. During that downtrend, shares of FIO have been consistently making lower highs and lower lows, which is bearish technical price action. That said, FIO has now started to bounce off that recent low and move within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once FIO manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $25.08 to $25.28 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in FIO once it manages to sustain a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 2.54 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then FIO will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 50-day at $27.35 or just under $29.
