From a technical perspective, HEES has started to move back above its 50-day moving average today of $18.98 with above average volume. This move has also triggered a near-term breakout trade since HESS has moved above some overhead resistance at $18.55.

Traders should now look for long-biased trades if HEES can manage to close back above its 50-day moving average today. If we get that action, look for HESS to make a run at its recent highs of $20.10 to $21 in the near future. I would then consider any high-volume move over $21 as a major breakout for HEES. Look for volume on that move that's near or above 258,117 shares.
