Traders should now look for long-biased trades in C as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $35.63, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 39.83 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then C will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $38.50 to $38.72. Any high-volume move above $38.72 will then push C into new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets above its 52-week high are $40 to $43.
