If you're bullish on ADNC, then look for long-biased trades as long as this stock is trending above $14 or its 50-day at $14.61 and then once it breaks out back above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $15.90 to $16.45 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 208,185 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then ADNC will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from last September that started near $20 a share.
