This move has started to push shares of CNX into breakout territory, since the stock has taken out some near-term overhead resistance at $32.99. At last check, CNX has hit an intraday high of $33.18 and volume is well above its three-month average action of 2.54 million shares. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CNX as long as it's trending above $32 to $32.99 with strong upside volume flows. I would consider any upside volume day that registers near or above its three-month average action of 2.45 million shares as bullish. If CNX can maintain that trend, then this stock will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $35.27 to $35.50. Any high-volume move above those levels will then put $37 to $37.12 into range for shares of CNX.
