Traders should now look for long-biased trades in MKTG as long as it's trending above Wednesday's low of $15.44 or above its 50-day at $14.47 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 421,794 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then MKTG 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 all-time high at $18.19 to north of $20.
