From a technical perspective, DLR is currently trending below both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bearish. This stock recently formed a double bottom chart pattern at $50.23 to $50.26 a share. Following that bottom, shares of DLR have started to spike notably higher and it's quickly moving within range of triggering a big breakout trade. If you're bullish on DLR, then look for long-biased trades as long as this stock is trending some key near-term support at $52 or at $50.23, and then once it breaks out above some near-term support levels at $55.44 to $55.65 a share to its 50-day at $55.94 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average volume of 1.65 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then DLR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 200-day at $62.15 a share to more resistance at $64.47 a share.
