From a technical perspective, AMRN is spiking big today and moving back above its 50-day moving average of $8.11 with monster volume. This move puts AMRN within range of triggering some near-term breakouts. Those breakouts will hit once $9.11 to $9.50 are taken out with volume.

A sustained high-volume move and close above those levels will signal that this stock wants to trend higher. Look for volume on that move that's near or well above 3,053,130 shares. If we get that action soon, look for AMRN to challenge the mid-$11s.
