Traders should now look for long-biased trades in CRME as long as it's trending above $6 or above $5.85 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 156,727 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then CRME will set up to enter new 52-week-high territory, which is bullish technical price action. Some possible upside targets off that move are $9 to $10.
