Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GIG as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $1.24 or above more support at $1.22 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 76,148 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then GIG will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $1.88 to $2.10.
