Today's Range: $1.40-$1.5052-Week Range: $1.33-$2.55 Volume: 55,000 Three-Month Average Volume: 20,236 From a technical perspective, GSB is trending higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $1.46 with heavy upside volume. This stock has been trading inside of a consolidation pattern for the last two months, with shares moving between $1.33 on the downside and $1.62 on the upside. This move today is quickly pushing shares of GSB within range of triggering a breakout trade above the upper end of that recent sideways trading pattern. That trade will hit if GSB manages to take out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.50 to $1.57 and then once it takes out more resistance at $1.62 with high volume. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GSB as long as it's trending above $1.33 or its 50-day at $1.46, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 20,236 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then GSB will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $1.77 to its 200-day at $1.87. Any high-volume move above $1.87 will then put $2 to $2.18 into range for shares of GSB.
