From a technical perspective, ECYT is ripping higher today off some near-term previous support at $4.83 with monster volume. This move is quickly pushing ECYT within range of triggering a big breakout. That breakout will trigger once ECYT takes out some near-term overhead resistance at $6.48 with volume.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades if EYCT can sustain a high-volume move and close over $6.48. Look for volume on that move that's near or well above 867,048 shares. If we get that action soon, then look for ECYT to make a run at its 200-day moving average of $8.68 in the near future.
