From a technical perspective, KPTI bounced modestly higher here right off some near-term support at $25 with above-average volume. This spike higher on Monday is starting to push shares of KPTI within range of triggering a major breakout trade. That trade will hit if KPTI manages to take out some key near-term overhead resistance levels at $28.07 to $28.51 and then once it clears its 50-day moving average of $29.33 to $29.47 with high volume.
Traders should now look for long-biased trades in KPTI as long as it's trending above some key near-term support at $25 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that's near or above 205,303 shares. If that breakout starts soon, then KPTI will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $32.50 to $35, or even $37.
