That move has now pushed shares of PANL within range of triggering a major breakout trade.
If you're bullish on PANL, then look for long-biased trades as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $31.75, and then once it breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $34.47 to $34.54 a share and above $35.60 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 1.10 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then PANL will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $40 to $44.42 a share.
