From a technical perspective, CYTR surged higher back above its 50-day moving average of $2.07 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of CYTR within range of triggering a major breakout trade.

If that breakout triggers soon, then CYTR will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from last October that started at $3.60.
