From a technical perspective, TIF trended higher Wednesday right above some near-term support at $56 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing TIF within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if TIF manages to clear its 200-day moving average at $60.13 and its 50-day moving average at $60.35 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in TIF as long as it's trending above $57, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.79 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then TIF will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $62 to $63.90.Keep in mind that any move above $60 will mean that shares of TIF have started to trade into its previous gap down zone from December that started at $63.90.
