From a technical perspective, MCEP spiked higher here back above its 200-day moving average of $23.45 with above-average volume. This move is quickly pushing shares of MCEP within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade. That trade will hit if MCEP manages to take out Monday's high of $23.39 to its 50-day moving average of $23.45 with high volume.Traders should now look for long-biased trades in MCEP as long as its trending above Mondays low of $22.57 or above more near-term support at $21.50, and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 71,888 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then MCEP will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $24.69 to its 52-week high at $27.05.
