Traders should now look for long-biased trades in OSIR as long as it's trending above its 200-day at $15.63 or above Wednesday's low of $14.62 and then once it sustains a move or close above $16.74 with volume that's near or above 278,990 shares. If that move triggers soon, then OSIR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $17.50 to $17.60, or even $18.41 to $19.75.
