>>5 Short-Squeeze Stocks Ready to Pop

From a technical perspective, NVDA spiked sharply higher here right off its 50-day moving average of $14.39 with heavy upside volume. This move pushed shares of NVDA into breakout territory, since the stock out some near-term overhead resistance at $14.88. Shares of NVDA are now starting to move within range of triggering another near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if NVDA manages to take out its 52-week high at $15.48 with high volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NVDA as long as it's trending above that first breakout level of $14.88 or above its 50-day at $14.39, and then once it sustains a move or close above its 52-week high at $15.48 with volume that hits near or above 8.58 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NVDA will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are its next major overhead resistance levels at $16.60 to $18.
