This stock has been uptrending for the last few weeks, with shares moving higher off its 200-day moving average at $12.36 to its intraday high of $14.24. During that uptrend, shares of JDSU have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action.

If that breakout hits soon, then JDSU will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $15.55 to $15.63. Any high-volume move above $15.63 will then push JDSU into new 52-week-high territory. That move will put $17 into range for shares of JDSU.
