This move has pushed shares of DIOD into new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in DIOD as long as it's trending above those key near-term breakout levels, and then once it sustains a move or close above its 52-week high at $22.46 with volume that hits near or above 231,446 shares.
