That trade will hit if GDOT manages to take out its 52-week high at $15.50 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GDOT as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $14.69 or above key near-term support at $13.84 and then once it sustains a move or close above $15.50 with volume that hits near or above 547,049 shares.
