From a technical perspective, AMRN is spiking higher here right off some near-term support at $7.95 with lighter-than-average volume. This stock has been trending range bound for the last month, with shares moving between $7.56 on the downside and $8.85 on the upside. This move is quickly pushing AMRN within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade above the upper-end of its recent sideways trading pattern. That breakout will hit if AMRN manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.72 to $8.85 and then once it takes out its 50-day at $9.31 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AMRN as long as it's trending above some key near-term support at $7.95, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 4.71 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then AMRN will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $9.59 to $10. Any high-volume move above $10 will then give AMRN a chance to re-fill its massive gap down zone from last December that started near $12.50.
