Shares of CVI closed off its intraday high of $41.29 to $40.03. Market players should now look for a continuation move higher in the short-term if CVI can manage to take out Monday's high of $41.29 with high volume.Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CVI as long as it's trending above Monday's low of $39.45 or above $38, and then once it sustains a move or close above $41.29 with volume that's near or above 553,164 shares. If we get that move soon, then CVI will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at its 200-day moving average of $44.44 to $45. Any high-volume move above those levels will then give CVI a chance to tag $47 to $48.
