Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AMBA as long as it's trending above that first breakout level of $18.35 or above more support at $17.50 and then once it sustains a move or close above its new all-time high at $19.50 with volume that hits near or above 1.04 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then AMBA will set up to enter new all-time high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that breakout are $25 to $27.
