Must Read: The Case for a Correction in Stocks
From a technical perspective, ANF gapped up sharply higher here back above its 50-day moving average of $34.08 with heavy upside volume. This move also pushed shares of ANF into breakout territory, since the stock took out some near-term overhead resistance at $36.50. Shares of ANF are now quickly moving within range of triggering another major breakout trade. That trade will hit if ANF manages to take Fridays high of $38.15 to some more key overhead resistance levels at $38.59 to $38.77 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in ANF as long as it's trending above Fridays low of $36.06 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 3.53 million shares. If that breakout hits soon, then ANF will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap-down-day zone from August that started at $48.
