From a technical perspective, KB is trending higher here right off some near-term support at $32.50 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing KB within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit once KB manages to clear some near-term overhead resistance at $34.56 with high volume. That move would also push KB back above both its 50-day at $33.72 and its 200-day at $33.91.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in KB as long as it's trending above $32.50, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 122,145 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then KB will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels $35.55 to $35.99. Any move above those levels will then give KB a chance to re-fill a previous gap down zone that started near $36.50.
