From a technical perspective, NEON ripped sharply higher here with above-average volume. This spike higher on Thursday briefly pushed shares of NEON into breakout territory, since the stock flirted with some near-term overhead resistance at $3.29. Shares of NEON closed just below that level at $3.23, but the stock is still trending within range of triggering another big breakout trade. That trade will hit if NEON manages to take out some key overhead resistance levels at $3.50 to its 50-day moving average of $3.68 with high volume.Traders should now look for long-biased trades in NEON as long as it's trending above Thursday's intraday low of $2.95 or above more near-term support at $2.73 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 1.28 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then NEON will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at 4.09 to around $4.50.
