Traders should now look for long-biased trades in FLWS as long as it's trending above its 50-day at $6.35 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 153,606 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then FLWS will set up to enter new 52-week high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $8 to $9.
