That trade will hit if MATX manages to clear some past overhead resistance levels at $26.65 to $27.69 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in MATX as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $24.89 or above its 200-day at $24.07, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 269,097 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then MATX will set up to re-test or possibly take out its all-time high at $30.30.
