This stock has been uptrending strong for the last three months, with shares soaring higher from its low of $8.85 to its recent high of $13.88 a share.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in MDRX as long as it's trending above some key near-term support at $13 to $12 a share and then once it breaks out above some key overhead resistance levels at $13.88 to $14.23 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 3.91 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then MDRX will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from last April that started at $16 a share. Any high-volume move above $16 will then put $18 to $20 into range for shares of MDRX.
