From a technical perspective, MKTG gapped sharply higher here and broke out above some near-term overhead resistance at $15.54 with monster upside volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of MKTG within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That trade will hit if MKTG manages to take out Wednesday's high of $16.49 to its 52-week high at $16.93 with high volume.

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.


Gartner ( IT) is an information technology research and advisory company. This stock closed up 1.6% at $57.81 in Wednesday's trading session.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades in IT as long as it's trending above some near-term support levels at $56.55 or $55.75 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 459,018 shares.
