From a technical perspective, EQM jumped higher here right above some near-term support at $43.22 with heavy upside volume. This move is starting to push shares of EQM within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if EQM manages to clear some near-term overhead resistance levels at $47.27 to its 50-day moving average at $47.91 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in EQM as long as it's trending above support at $43.22 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 200,025 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then EQM will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $50.88 to its all-time high at $51.72. Any high-volume move above $51.72 will then give EQM a chance to tag $55 to $60.
