During that move, shares of NANO have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed NANO into breakout territory, since the stock has flirted with some near-term overhead resistance levels at $15.73 to $15.80. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NANO as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $14.58, and then once it sustains a move or close above some key breakout levels at $15.80 to $15.91 with volume that hits near or above 104,215 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NANO will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $16.50 to $17.50. Any move above $17.50 will then give NANO a chance to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from last April that started at $19.
