From a technical perspective, YGE is bouncing higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $1.64 with heavy upside volume. This move is quickly pushing YGE within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once YGE manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.75 to $1.90 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in YGE as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $1.64, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 954,671 shares. If YGE triggers that breakout, then this stock will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2.18 to its 200-day at $2.61.
