Market players should now look for long-biased trades in BSPM if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.18 a share to its 200-day moving average at $1.21 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 37,579 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then BSPM will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $1.36 to $1.39 a share. Any high-volume move above $1.39 will then put $1.55 to $2 into range for shares of BSPM.
Traders can look to buy BSPM off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below its 50-day moving average of $1.06 a share. One could also buy BSPM off strength once it takes out those breakout levels with volume and then simply use a stop that sits just below $1.10 a share.
