This move also pushed shares of CRTX into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance levels at $8.35 to $8.95. Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CRTX as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $8.68 or above that breakout level of $8.35 and then once it sustains a move or close above Tuesday's high of $9.20 with volume that hits near or above 87,460 shares. If we get that move soon, then CRTX will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $10 to its 52-wek high at $10.37. Any high-volume move above those levels will then give CRTX a chance to tag $11 to $12.
